P.S Do they have you on any maint. meds yet? Did I ever ask you about Methotrexate, my doctor wants me to go on that over Imuran. Your thoughts when you feel up to it.
Read my thread under MTX 5/19/2009 on Page 4 right now. It will tell you wht you are asking and other's replies.
Never thought about blockages from inflammation but sounds like you might need something stronger.
Hi Wolfie, Read your other post this morning, sorry you are having problems again. Did you get the results of the X-ray? I would hope that it's not from scar tissue from surgery already? Don't know if you got my last post on here or followed up on the B12 thread? Did your GI just put you on B12 because you had a resection? Are you tired or fatigued? Have you had your B12 checked? Or is this something he prescribes for everyone? As I posted I saw my B12 results on one of my bloodwork reports.
As far as being wishy washy, no one wants to be on any higher end drug than necessary. And they all come with their risks. With both Imuran and MTX you have to have regular bloodwork done. Maybe that's a good thing to know how things are overall but it means one more poke in the veins.
You were right about wanting to see the incisions. Just have tape left on my biggest one.
Will be watching for replies to your other post and hope you get some answers and relief from this.
But you get up very early, I have seen what time you post on here. Good to hear there are some positive outcomes of the surgery. When you talk about the pain going from one side to the other it made me wonder if when then take your intestines out and stuff them back in again, if they go back to the same place?
I cannot go to sleep before midnight and sometimes its 2-3AM. but can sleep in if needed. Partly due to age maybe and change in lifestyle.
I am surprised your Doc is talking about Humira now? How come he is thinking about jumping past metho or Imuran? You were reluctant about them, what do you think of Humira? I know my GI mentioned Humira for the first time at my visit last week. Haven't researched it enough yet but would reeeaally question that if I was not experiencing Crohn's symtoms.
Did reply to your post on my thread 'small bowel ultrasound'. Thought I could be left alone for awhile but I am quite interested in finding out what they can see. (As long as it isn't bad news!)
