WOW...she has had CD for 7 years? I will pray for her...I can only imagine what she (and you) are going through. I have been on Humira for about 6 months, I usually take my syringe out of the fridge for about 1/2 hour before I inject, it doesn't sting as bad. Question, how was your daughter diagnosed? My daughter is 7 years old now, and she has complained about belly aches off and on for at least 2 years now. I took her to see a GI doctor, who put her on previcid, but didn't do any testing. Not sure of the next step, do I demand further testing?
thanks for listening, kelly
Thank you! I'll make sure it's room temp! Demery
Hi Kelly, Olivia never had a solid stool. The doctors said it was because I was breast feeding. At 2 1/2 she started having blood in stool. the doctors said she probably had fissures. Two months later I gave up on her pediatricians and took to a GI doc who immediately did a colonoscopy. She bled so badly she had to stay and have a transfusion - oh the stories I could tell.
Ditto on the room temp,and ice the injection site for at least 20 minutes,that helps me alot. I feel so bad for her,I'm 40,and I get anxious before my shot.
