I've had Crohn's disease for over 40 years and have recently been told that I've built up antibodies against Humira. I recently had a flare and wondered why the drug wasn't working. I was on it for about two years and it really helped! I go to the doctor tomorrow to get on something different. I just don't know what new drugs are available.
Now I am having extreme joint pain - especially in my S.I. joints, hands and wrists.
I have been trying to live my life as normally as possible but over the past 10 years I have become a recluse. I simply can't leave my apartment most of the time. I am 63 years old and want to spend time with my two sons but it involves travel which is so hard for me.
I just want to say to others who have Crohn's that you can still have a life. I was told not to get pregnant 31 years ago but i have two loving, careing, amazing sons.
My sister was just diagnosed with Crohn's disease last fall. She is currently on Humira and having pretty good success. I worry for my son's wondering if their is some genetic link. I pray that they stay healthy!
I would love to here from some older folks with Crohn's. Maybe we can trade information and stories.
It's very helpful to hear about ways others have coped. 😕
