Hi was just wondering when you thought it was the right time to start stronger medication?
I've been on Pentasa 3000mg and Azathiroprine 100mg for many years and have just recently had a ileum cecum operation due to feeling bloated and distended for 9 months continuously. I'm seeing my GI in a few days and will be asking him if he thought the medication I've been on in the past has been working efficiently. I've had Crohns for roughly 17 years but started getting blockages after around 2 years once diagnosed. When I had my surgery 3 weeks ago the surgeon told me to stop all meds and he thought thats what my GI would recommend too. I know this is not right so will be asking him about meds and possible stronger ones too, like remicade or Humira. Im still having diarrhea about 4 times per day.
Just wondered what your views were. Thanks
