    Since you had posted at the bottom of an older thread, and it was your first post, I thought I'd take a moment to welcome you and to invite anyone else to drop in and say hello. I think that there is no universal set of side effects of transplant. Some of us have more problems than others. I was pretty lucky. My biggest problem initially was depression (never got angry because I wasn't on pred at all) and I got some medication for it. I'm not pushing it, just saying what worked for me. I went off it eventually. I am now 7 1/2 years post kidney transplant and had a pancreas transplant in 2008. I found the first year after each transplant the hardest. But things for me are going quite well. I am now on rapamune and myfortic and things are stable. Take care. Cora

    Thanks for the welcome Cora. You and others here are a mine of useful infomation. It is a great place to chat about all the issues that the Docs don't have the time or the knowledge to help with. Sometimes you just can't beat experience. I am looking forward to contributing here where I can :smile: Alli
