The anti-rejection drugs are the main reason I am hesitant about this....but 
I heard there is a new one out and have also heard that with stem cells 
(which this isn't) that you don't need those drugs.  I'm thinking maybe if I 
don't do this but get approved IF i pass all the tests that when stem cell 
comes around, I can be one of the first to try it (hopefully)...... at least 
I'll have the tests out of the way.  And NO, I'm not being selfish!  LOL.....
