Post Kidney Transplant Issues
I know that this is not a post kidney transplant group but there is not one that I have found on here. Have any of you experienced post kidney transplant issues with prograf? My husband was just transplanted on new year's day and his creatinine keeps rising then falling based on the prograf level. We are worried and keep getting the same discouraging responses from the transplant team. They just say they don't know why his creatinine is rising to 2.29 when the prograf level is 12.1 because that is not a high level. Any insight is appreciated.

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
