I am officially accepted into MUSC's transplant program! I will be listed on the national registry for a kidney. We are STILL looking and testing for a live donor. My sister should be a front runner soon.....we are hoping.
I am to start Cellcept though prior to transplant. Normally, this is given after transplant to bring the chance of rejection down. It is an autoimmune suppressant drug. HOWEVER....because it is an autoimmune suppressant drug the transplant team wants to see if I will respond well to it and bring my ANA titer down to a reasonable level. I see that people with Lupus or Sjogrens are put on this to control their disease....it looks favorable. Anyone out there using Cellcept?
I am very happy with my news.....now I just need to respond well to Cellcept!
