for me I guess it means going a few times a day w/some blood. Arrgh!
I'm on cellcept for my kidneys and cross your fingers, knock on wood, rub a magic troll.......it seems to be working. I will know when if I am able to get off pred w/out relapsing.
Problems is, I cant take any 5ASA's (that's what got me kidney disease) and I cant be on any immune supressor while on cellcept b/c that is an immune suppressor, so I can't take remi or humira or imuran while on it.
Will be going to see GI. I already take probiotics, the refridgerated primodolphious reutiri (sp?) nature's way, 2 pills a day. Anything else non-traditional anyone can recommend?
Beth, 33 ~ hoping to taper pred successfully, wish me luck!
