I didnt read the responses sorry just got back from the bathroom or as my husband calls it my office....oh yeah my cat is the secretary according to him since Midnight waits as the door for me to come out...and I am in a bit of pain. I have had multiple resections within the past year. My GI is a CD specialist his name is Samir Shah he is one of the directors of CCFA in new england and he does many speaches about pregnancy CD, and CD meds. I was told 6 months. Last year when it was just after my 1st Sx..then 2nd one he said (the 2nd Sx I ended up with a temporary ileostomay) 6 months after the reversal we will do a colonoscopy6 to make sure the preventative meds are doing their job and if all looks good you will get the green light....well I ended up with an enterocutaneous fistula and had to have more surgery in January but still had that scope in december. He said it looked as though the Humira has put it back in remission except for the areas that were going to be removed from the CD causign the fistula etc. Since my Surgery I saw him exactly 1 month post op and he told me then when my wound infection healed to start back on HUmira but at the regular dose (1 every other week) I was on double that before the surgery to help with drainage and joint pain. He told me that if in 6 months (so 6 months from February) if I have no major CD problems etc I will not need another scope to get the green light to try and start a family he said if I decide to wait like 2 or 3 years I would need another scope in that case. He also mentioned tryikng abviously the natural way and if unable to concieve then go to IVF. My husband has a child from a previous relationship therefore if there are issues with concieveing I will be 99%sure its me lol.
Good luck I hope your doc is up to date on things like mine. I know I will need a high risk OBGYN and he said he would keep me on HUmira for the 1st 2 trimesters and prefer to take me off for the last trimester but I guess we will iron out those details better when the time comes and if issues arise when I do become pregnant.
