hey guys after 12 weeks of trying the drug or placibo the research center decided to let me in on the open label....so that means I am taking the drug(orencia) abatacept . I got my first IV medication last week ....but nothing changed I have more pain and more diahrea. the research nurse told me that if I am not feeling better that I can make a appt to see my GI (witch he's the research dr also) and he can RX predinisone or entocort.I see him next moth anyway for my physical so will talk to him then and see....the good thing about it is that my knees are much better.....It is use for RA ...
so that's my news
