Hi keep it as short as possible I have had chrohns for 20 years initially took steroids then mezalazine up until recently. I was in pain on and off so I had a colonoscopy and a 12 inch stricture was found so I'm now on azathiophine but after 3 months I have two side effects 1 iam tired all the while 2 my feet are so sore they feel I have walked 30 miles also my heels are v painful if I knock them also I seem to get headaches. I have 2 questions should I just have the op to remove the stricture which I have been offered but not necessary as I'm pain free look well not loosing weight etc ? But my main concern is this what health issues am I going to have in say two or three years of taking this drug? My teeth just crumble away and 2 years ago a surgeon was all for doing a full shoulder replacement all because of me taking steroids years ago I'm going to discuss this with my GP but I cannot get an appointment for 3 weeks to see her can anyone give any advice in the meantime please ? Jon
