I was diagnosed with ulcerative proctitis 5 years ago initially but didn't get any follow up appointment after my colonoscopy. I have since had 2 more colonoscopies and am experiencing a 3rd flare up that has been going on for 12 months now. I've now got a specialist and nurse who are looking after me. I've tried all sorts of different medications including 5asa and prednisilone steroids. I have either bad reactions to the 5asa and limited success with steroids so I'm now looking at a choice of biologic medication. I'm aware of some of the side effects but have to decide on self injection, Humid a, or hospital infusion, Remicade. Can anyone who has experienced these types of medications give me some idea of their success and pros and cons re their side effects. I'm very confused about which method to try and want to make as informed a decision as possible.
Thank you for reading this and I look forward to any help and advice you can offer.
