hi everyone, I was diagnosed with Crohn's in 2003 when rushed into hospital with stomach pains, which resulted in an 8 week stay and an operation to removed a 6inch infected part of my bowel. I have since then been given various drugs to maintain the Crohn's which in all I've managed to get by, but over the last year it's been getting worse. So my specialist has recommended I go on Azathioprine, after reading up the side affects it causes I am now thinking it's not a good idea to start taking them. The lowered immune system is bad enough but the chances of cancers and tumours are making me think I'll just carry on muddling by like I have done for years.
Sorry for for babbling on, I just wanted to know if anyone else has been on these long term and had any of the major side effects?
