... life long?
6 Dec 2011
I have had my kidney transplant for almost 40 years. This was before cyclosporin was even invented. I am still on anti rejection meds. I still have blood work every month and see my specialist every 3 months.They considered swtching me to cyclosporin. They also considered taking me off my current meds by slowly lowering the dosage, but then, as one of my specialists said, if it ain't broke, then don't try to fix it. This has worked for me for 40 years, and don't want to take a chance that switching meds or coming off the meds will mess things up, so I would just be thankful you have had 18 good years, and just learn to stay on the meds for life.
