  • Question on use of anti-rejection meds post chronic kidney transplant rejection

    What has been the experience of kidney transplant patients who have lost their kidneys due to chronic rejection or other reasons as far as continued use of anti-rejection meds (cellcept, prograf, rapamune). Can one come off or wean off the anti rejection meds or will patient need to stay on anti rejection meds to prevent immune system attacking a kidney that is still receiving blood flow though the kidney is not functioning? thanks

    My understanding is that if a graft fails and you end up back on dialysis, you stop the immunsuppressants.
