I am just over a cold that lasted 5 weeks. I am almost 5 months post tx. My WBC count dropped from 3.5 to 1.9. It is slowly increasing to 2.1,however my neutrophil count keeps lowering to 0.8 now. I just had my first dose of Neupogen and they cut my Cellcept dose to 250 mg twice a day. I am small and only weigh 98 lbs. I also take Tacro 2mg twice a day. No steroids. They are rechecking labs and also CMV tomorrow. I am nervous. Has anyone experienced this? I'm sure someone has. What if the CMV is positive? Has anyone been treated without having to be hospitalized? I have no symptoms. I'm new at this and having anxiety. Thanks to all and God Bless.
Does anyone know if your kidney Fails do they just put you back on the kidney list? Or do you go back to dialysis?
I can relate my experience, though it is just that, others may be different. I had a Tx that lasted 13 years before waning. I returned to dialysis for about eight months before opting for second Tx from an "at risk" donor, who passed on, allowing me to jump ahead of the list. We are doing fine and it was noticeably better and easier than my first. I know of others that received a second Tx from a living donor, which happened quickly after the first failed. Everyone is unique, as is their health needs and issues.
The combination of diabetic neuropathy and nerve calcification from parathyroid issues severely affected my ability to ambulate normally. When investigating a issue, one must look toward what has changed recent to the appearance of symptoms. I believe it is doubtful the med mix is at fault if the symptom "suddenly" appeared. I do hope you find answers soon.
Hello!! I received a kidney transplant 9 months ago and all has been fairly stable. My two side effects post transplant were becoming diabetic (yes, I'm on tacrolimus - feeling nervous about trying the switch to cyclosporine) and the second is recurring eye vessel bursts in my left eye which NEVER happened prior to transplant. Every couple of weeks I feel pressure in my eye and, sure enough, within seconds, its blood red. Eye doctor says it's not an issue but I just think it's weird that it started happening so frequently after transplant. Has anyone had this happen to them?? Also, for those of you who decided to switch from Tacrolimus to Cyclosporine, how was it for you?? Thanks ahead of time!!
