dr. would like to give my husband Cyclosporine as he has had a hip replacement and now is allergic to the new hip!!! She wants him to check out all the side effects and determine if in fact he still wants to try that particular drug. He is 83 years old – can’t live indefinitely with the hip replacement – but cyclosporine might buy him some time to decide what he wants to do (1. remove hip and not be able to walk? 2. replace hip replacement with something, if we can find something to which he is not allergic) Not many options – the other question is: he has macular degeneration and will cyclosporine do any further damage to his eyes? Should he take it?
