thanks Erin... Yes Jon Bon Jovi...I've been to about 7 concerts even shook his hand once & have lots of the guitar pics they through out.  Had front row.  Just love the guys.  Their music can be very spiritual if you know the words.  HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE.

oh hey, about your Imuran...i take 50mg daily plus on 3 days i take 75mg (so an extra 1 1/2 pills for 3 days).
when did you get the okay to take 75mg daily? i've been on it for almost a year (for RA & CD) and was wondering if it took you a while before you were able to take a bigger dose. what dose did you start at?
......whoa we're half way there.....WHOA OH....livin' on a prayer..... hee hee LOVE IT!
ciao!

Hi Erin, You are so funny!  I started on the .75 imuran in 2003 during an emergency resection. 
I have had many issues during this decade.  I would love to reduce it, but, when something is working I hate to change it.  I actually take 1 pill daily .50 & then 2 the next.  My doc told me to do it that way so I didn't have to break the pills in 1/2 for the .75 daily. I initially started on .25 in 2000 when I was battling an abcess that became my worst nightmare.  Imuran is the only "real" med I take for the CD, of course I take supplements too.  I can't believe all the extra complications these CD has.  Right now I have an appt for the rheumatologist dec 4.  I was suppose to go last Wed but it was cx.  I was very disappointed, I'm having so much joint pain.  It used to just be my lower back, now b hips, entire back/neck, r wrist & b feet.  Last year tests showed I did not have RA, but, OA in the hips with a buldging disk.  Do you think this increase in joint pain is normal or could i have developed RA?  I don't think I am immune to the amount of vicodin, just that more joints are being affected.  Sounds like you have your hands full with you health too.   God Bless, remember, "Keep the Faith", & "Have a Nice"! tongue
