... results are better than ever. Should I be concerned about rejection and go back to 1g daily? My nephrologist has no clue.
I just saw my nephrologist today to get my cell cent reduced. He's all for it. I go for a checkup every 6 month and do a 24 hour urine test and blood test to make sure e everything is working properly. I never really had any other lupus signs except for my kidneys and I know that lupus can go into remission. My attitude is go off slowly. I went from 1000 down to 750 so if your not comfortable with a drastic reduction then ask to only go down to 750 for 6 months and get retested. If all is still good keep reducing. That is my plan. I am currently off everything except Cellcept and doing well. Good luck to you and congrats for keeping it at bay.
Hi. It sounds like the person who first answered this was dealing with lupus and not necessarily transplant issues. If you are meaning your question from a transplant position, I would say that if you have been dropped to the lower dose of CellCept and your blood results are great not to be too concerned right now. Just keep up with your labs and followup. There is always a chance of rejection at any point down the road for anyone; being on a higher or lower dose doesn't really determine that. It is more about how your body is responding to the transplant. Yes the meds are important in helping with that, but if you are doing well, enjoy it! If your health changes in a way that would lower your immunity further, even with just a long cold, I would follow the blood tests a little closer but otherwise I would stay on the lower dose and not lose any sleep over it.
