seeing kidney doc tonite and I am almost in remission, think I am steriod dependent. Also when I get down to less than 10mg or 5mg I see some blood in my bm's but still only one bm a day.
So methinks the Imuran is not helping me otherwise there wouldn't be any blood?? I want my kidney's to get better so I think since the imuran is not helping then I will go on cellcept (can't be on both at the same time).
Will let you know how it goes w/the cellcept. Just in time for the holidays = )
Hope you all are well. Take care.
btw, I got back from my UK trip and all went well UC (my kidneys got worse coz of my pred taper). I have been going on facebook more, it's a nice break from thinking about my health issues.
