I go to my GI in November and he wants me to get an enzyme test tpmt to see how many side effects I will get and how bad they will be. I am really scared of this medication. I know this is a 6MP Mercaptopurine and a chemo one for people with cancer. I am out of surgery going on 7 months and have inflammation and a narrowing already. Will this medication put me in remission. How can this put me in remission when I already have this back again. I know Crohn's never go away. I am currently on Pentasa the crohn's is in the small bowel. I have had 1 exploratory, and 3 resections. Been in the hospital for dehydration, malnutrition so bad that they had to put more than one iv into my chest above my lung. That was so painful when they had to cut 4 small incisions, while a rolled up towel between my shoulder blades. Then fed me with food for 17 days. Can anyone tell me how they go day by day with this chemo med?
