    hi leonor, and welcome.

    the concept of our ailment takes a bit to sink in.
    it is mind blowing at first.....
    but life can go on quite comfortably for some of us.

    the trick is to try to balance our immune system with modern medication.
    when we are able to get the balance just right..........

    please read a few of our older posts.....
    thay are our personalexperiences with lupus.

    again welcome.

    Cellcept? So they plan on giving you a transplant? Or are they using it to see if it will stop your immune system from fighting the good parts?

    You must let us know how it turns out.

    I wish you the best and welcome you to the site!

    it is quite common for those of us with agressive lupus,to have this prescribed.
    as the lupus slows down..... then we switch from cellcept to other less aggressive medications.
