With the cimzia did you self inject? if so was it w/ a reg subQ set up or do they offer the pen. The site says it is to injected by a nurse in the office....but I could swear my gastro said i could do it at home.
I am with you on the infusions....did them for 2 years while on Tysabri.....besides the Rem is IMO pretty cuastic stuff and I am not sure I want to go there.
Thanks for the concern Nanners.....but yes I continue to have issues. The surgery never really fixxed everything, just the major issue of the small bowel. They found areas of concern in the large intestine when they took it out and looked it over....but surgery was not required.
Went back in yesterday for a colonoscopy and things were not good....two strictures...ulcers...the works. Things have gotten worse not better they said. So now we are sure that the Humira is useless (for me) and it is time to try something else. I know it sounds crazy that i am extremely concerned about remicaid but not to concerned to go back on Tysabri....but I know Tysabri works. I do not know anything about Cimzia....when I left the clinic yesterday the doctor said I should study up on both and let him know what I wanted to do....I go back to see him in 2 weeks so I am getting my information ducks in a row.
Thanks all...good information, but even better support.
Rider: My doc has not said no to the Tysabri....but he has said he will not be the one to oversee its application. He would prefer that I go back to the doctor who originally administered the testing phase when I was on it. He said that about a year ago...maybe he has changed his mind with the passage of time.
