My mother has been diagnosed with Birdshot for probably 5 years now. She has been seeing Dr. Foster in Boston. Today I just received word that Dr. Foster said she was cured!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Dr. Foster is truly an angel of the Lord, and my family thanks him for all that he does. I didn't even think this disease could be cured!! For anyone suffering from this disease, do whatever you can to see Dr. Foster in Boston. You won't regret it!!! My thoughts and prayers are with all of you, and good luck! SCH

SCHunter - can you respond with the treatment that your mother received form Dr. Foster. It may help some of us that have not been cured yet. Additionally, it might be helpful to add anything else that your mother changed about her life - diet, exercise, etc. Thank you, James

I know Dr Foster very well, he's the best birdshot physician around. He has several patients in remission with birdshot. Dr. Foster put the best treatment plan together, the "cocktail" of cyclosporine and Cellcept. I founded and host a forum dedicated to birdshot since 1999. Every remission but one has been due to taking the medication and treatment and nothing to do with diet, exercise, etc.

I must say I am surprised to see someone using the word "cure", when it comes to this disease, as I have been told there is no cure.  Perhaps they mean "remission", which is wonderful.  I hope it continues!
