Hello everyone, just me wanting advice about Dad again please. Dad was diagnosed with ANCA+ MPA pretty much a year ago. As far as I'm aware, he was in remission when he collapsed with pneumonia, E Coli and septic shock two months ago.
He has had CMV whilst in hospital and remains quite ill with the pneumonia.
I keep asking about the Vasculitis which was last being managed with only intravenous steroids but seems to have taken a back seat to everything else.
My question is, will he have to go back to taking the immunosuppressants eventually and also, what do the steroids do on their own - just keep inflammation at bay?
