Walter, obviously, there are some medications that are similar such as prograf and prednisone, but after that it is a different story. As we also know, prednisone is not a drug that is taken by all transplant patients. I don't know about everyone, but I am curious about the drugs which are NOT common to each transplant and why they are taken. I would like to know about other types of transplants. It might help us to better understand what other patients are going through. I know that there are some folks who have good days and bad days and others who have mostly good or mostly bad days. It amy be that they have to take more of a medication on one day or the next. We do know that once a person has a transplant, it does take a medication as well as a patient adjustment period.

Just thought that I would share a significant milestone in heart medicine.  I was a beneficiary of this program.
