Re: lupus nephritis and Cellcept
all immune suppressive drugs have the risk of cancer. my doc says it is a minimal risk. (if he is lying, please dont tell me..would rather not know..lol)
the cellcept side effects were very minor. yes, i did go into a remission with the nephritis. i was never able to get a biopsy because i have had clots while on coumadin and the risk to take me off was high. they decided to see if the cellcept worked, and if not, go to cytoxan.
i was so happy because i was very afraid of cytoxan treatments. this has been a wonderful drug for me, mixed with prednisone. i have had some funky infections, but i always caught them early, and i am now ok.
good luck guys. good thoughts going to you both.
