JK I’ve seen some of your other posts in Transplant discussions. Liver transplant? When I had my pancreas transplant it was at a facility where they had a protocol to be steroid free as much as possible. I think I only had 1 or 2 doses IV of a steroid. Post transplant I had 2 different immunosuppressants. Now I am listed at Mayo for Kidney transplant (currently inactive) but I’ve heard that when transplant time comes prednisone will be used. That concerns me but I’m trusting that all will turn out for the best.

@cehunt57 Yes, mine was a liver transplant. @rosemary has had both liver and kidney so she is versed on kidney. I take a regular immunosuppressant plus a very small dose of prednisone. Initially, it was a much higher dose but they quickly weaned me down to a low dose. I too was worried about prednisone because I had taken it in the past and not liked it — big weight gain. This dose is not a problem for me at all though, and I suspect that I am typical.
