Advice & Tips: This drug does cause hernias anywhere you have previously been operated on...except of course your knee or foot... I don't mind taking this drug in fact I feel I need it so I won't reject my sisters kidney, since we only shared 1 antigen out of 6...I'm taking care of this kidney and if this is the drug I need to keep it, then I 'll just continue to have my hernias repaired...I've had 8 hernia surgeries to my abdomine and kidney sight in the last 10 yrs...it's been painful and I now have 3 new hernias...I can't lift anything over 10lbs, or bend excessively with out tearing myself...I constantly have to ask friends and neighbors to help me around the house, even carrying in the groceries...I'm sure one of the reasons my ex hubby found a younger woman was so he could scuba dive with her...I can't carry the tanks...and I'm sure he got sick of the surgeries and helping me as well...oh well, win some and lose some...
Cost: $200+ monthly
