The old forum will be switched to 'read-only' mode in a few weeks, depending on speed of the transition. It will then be available for a year or more so that people can read the prior posts. This is the same procedure we used when transitioning from the first discussion group to the current one.

If you have ideas on how to make the transition go more smoothly, please send Sandi or me an e-mail.

Im not sure where to post this since there is no longer a topic for Lupus. But Ill post here either way. I met when the new rhema today and I really liked her. She has been the first dr to ask me whats going on. She sat and spoke with me for over an hr. She thinks that I do have lupus and its smoldering as she put it for the past 3 yrs with the other 2 drs treating my symptoms (not very well in her opinion). She doesnt think I should be on this high of a dose of pred. Shes worried about osteoperosis. Doesnt feel that the dose of cellcept that I am on is really doing what it needs to do--the dose is too low. She would like to switch me over to Imuran--but this all depends on my liver enzymes and this will be gradual start with a low dose imuran and taper out the cellcept. So far my joints look good, nothing inflamed--but thats due to the prednisone. She ordered a whole battery of bloodwork, to get her baseline. But overall Im very happy with her and how she works. Of course she will be calling my hema and discussing everything with him and getting his opinion prior to do anything. Either way I have some kind of autoimmnue stuff going on, even if its not lupus she still wants to follow me.

It all depends on what the doctor is comfortable with. I had a count of 80, the GI doctor said that if there were any polups or anything he needed to remove he wouldnt feel comfortable doing it with a count of 80. They had platelets on standby. What about possibly getting some IVIG to get your counts up prior to the colonoscopy? I was monitored for bleeding for about 8 hrs prior to them letting me go home.

My GI doctor said he would do it if my count were over 50K. The pred I took before the procedure actually pushed it over 100K.

Your username will appear in the box to the right. Is that what you mean by a signature?
