I started to become blind within a week of having a kidney and pancreas transplant at Tulane Medical center in New Orleans in 2008, within a year , I was totally blind , the doctors seemed totally unaware that prograf could cause blindness. Basically , my daughter and husband discovered an article by Dr. Brazis at Mayo clinic in Florida. But it was too late to save my vision . I have discovered that a woman from Louisiana had filed a lawsuit, against the drug company for not making doctors aware of this side effect, this suit was filed well before my transplant. I feel very resentful of this fact as I may have been able to save some of my vision had this side effect been known by my doctors. I have been taking Rapamune , cellcept and prednisone since 2009.
