Hi Mechelle,

When you say that the drug therapy only keeps you in remission, do you mean that you are on the drug cyclosporin forever?

A Doctor from Seattle told me that only 28% have long term success, so I guess the 30% is about right.

Also, I think the stats for the drug therapy are 30% no relapse, 30% relapse and 30% no help at all.

Please tell me any side effects that you are going through or have gone through from the drug therapy. Everyone is pushing me to do this to my son.

I very much appreciate your time.

Sue
