Some 20 days ago my father was diagnosed with Wegener's, but no kidneys affected, at least not yet. We are Greek, living in Greece and first time even heard of the disease. It is too rare in Greece. Now on therapy with prednisone (50mg per day and cutting down 5 mg every week) and a monthly dose of cyclophosphamide (I believe called Cytoxan). Any help on how to understand what he is going through and support him both mentally and physically would be very appreciated.
