Hello to all of you.
Ok so here I go, in 1978 I had been diagnosed with Crohns I was only 21 but very sick and did not know anything about this disease. I had my colon completely removed and have an illeostomy. In the yr 2000 was placed on Pentasa. I have been in remission for several years, until recently. I had some blood clots I Feb 2016, placed on Xarelto. My family physician sent me to see my Gastrologist due to real low hemoglobin wanted to make sure there was no internal bleeding. At that time I was experiencing some abdominal pain but not anything that was serious. My Gastrologist performed endoscopy to make sure I wasn't bleeding. He said he wanted to do a colonoscopy, He then did a pill cam study, then next came a small bowel series, the results are Active Crohns with ulcers and strictures. I still have some uncomfortable abdominal pain which seems to have gotten worse In the last month or so. Gastrologist says that Pentasa no longer working and he would like to start me on humira. What I would like to know is if any of you can give me pros and cons about their experience with this drug before I make the decision to go on this. Thanks for reading and replies.
