I am really really really happy to hear your update!! This is just great laugh even better that she gets to return to "work" smile

Max was healing until I tried to back off on one of his meds, and he took a few steps back, but we are on the right track again.

It's a bit scary what the wrong food and a goofy immune system can do when they are combined. I'm glad that a whole bunch of things are getting better for Skye.

Bummer about the pannus, thank goodness that's fairly controllable.

I'm not sure if this is a hijack, but, Sandy, if you read this, about the tac, are you talking about the immune supression inviting cancer risk? I haven't seen the warning, but I'm guessing it's similar to cyclosporine? I use the tac for Max's pannus, and, although it's working very well for his eyes, I think it might have some systemic effects for him.

The FDA put a black box warning on Tacrolimus several years back regarding potential cancer risks, at the time I was using it and it was after Star had used it and it did scare me back then. I haven't followed it much recently, until now when I did a quick google. Sounds like the FDA is backing off a bit: http://www.fda.gov/Safety/MedWatch/Safet...s/ucm151161.htm

Thanks Sandy, I appreciate the info.

I think that all of these drugs are powerful and in the longterm always have the potential to cause problems, though it seems very rare in these fistula uses.

Hey, Lisa - not a hijack. Anything we can get into this thread about PF and meds is great. I also was interested to read what Sandy had to say.

Thanks all!
