Re: Mycophenalate and Bronchiectasis

Update:
Consultant has agreed the cause of the severe chest infection/wide spread effects of bronchiectasis is likely due to Mycophenalate. Waiting for confirmation from chest doctor to confirm no other factors.
Will wait and see what happens next.....
Keep well all x

Re: First PD holiday

Have a brilliant time!

I can't offer any advice, other than as a mother to older teenagers:

Good for you for going!
