I am 3yrs post liver TX. I take prograf and myfortic. Until 1 month ago was also taking prednisone.
I have recently started having real pain in both thumbs. Doc says it is osteoarthritis. Couple questions.
1. Pred may have been working to keep down the inflamation and pain. Any ever had arthritis flair up when they got off of pred?
2. I'd like to be able to take some of supplements that are supposed to help the arthritis. Such as glucosamine amoung others. My TX team says no. Anybody on my same meds taking an anti-arthritis supplement?
I'm hurting. Going to do something, just not sure what. Any help appreciated.
