g'day Corrine ...... Welcome to the site. I do have a question about post TX of 17 yrs. I had my Liver TX 17+ years ago. Have been on 3mgs Prograf and 5mgs Prednisone for past 14 years. You did not list what drugs you were taking in bio. Prograf seems to be damaging my kidney's to the point i have only about 1/3 what they call normal function. Transplant center is now switching me off Prograf to Cellcept. I just started this switch a week ago.......... Was wondering seeing that you are at about the same time out if you are having this same problem if on Prograf..?? --Burnie Liver TX 2/95 at UCSF CA
