  • Do the drs have any idea which medication causes the liver damage?

  • No— she had been on Anakinra, Enbrel, Cyclosporin, Rilonacept, Thalidomide, Prednisone, Dexamethasone, ATG, and Etoposide, also different antibiotics. She wasn't on anything for long except for the steroids but lots of changes of meds. Then she was off of everything but hydrocortisone. Liver/lung damage diagnosed almost 2 1/2 years after stopping all the biologics, chemo, etc.

  • Yep, I have alot of experience w that being a pedi nurse, and they are so easy, but lots of risk of infection w the picc line.
