My Prograf levels went high at one point and the Transplant team lowered my dosage and everything has been fine since then. (I had a single lung transplant 6/23/09)

Thank you for the info....I have been having headaches but I thought it was just all the stress I been under. I wont know anything til my lab results come back but I will keep you posted I really appreciate you sharing this information with me.

Hi, I don't think a "HIGH" level of Prograf level is rejection, they will probably LOWER your prograf level by having you skip a dose and then start back up on the next day.. don't quote me on it but this has happened to me and I ended up in the hospital for having bad headache and they realized that my prograf level was 18 so that's what they did. Your body may have been slow to digest it and it backed up. Hope this helps and keep me posted

Niece in Need of Housing in Los Angeles

My niece has been approved for a kidney transplant at Cedar's Sinai in LA but hasn't found an affordable place to stay for the three months following the transplant. Does anyone know of a place or have a suggestion on how to find a place. Her social worker did give her a list of hotels/motels but they are out of her price range. She is doing some fund raising to help cover expenses. Any ideas would be appreciated.Thank you.See More
