I just returned from a visit with my GI. Re: reoccurrence of Crohn's and daily swelling (of 3 months) of my right ankle that's quite painful and troublesome. I had thought we would go with Remicade, but after a merry go round about Remicade/Imuran, it sounds like he thinks Imuran would be best for me b/c you can't stop and restart Remicade and I didn't want to be on anything for 5 years straight. Anyway, he said Imuran is about 70 percent successful at addressing the intestinal inflammation; not necessarily as good with arthritis. So we'll be doing a wait and see and then re-evaluate.
Have any of you experienced success with Imuran addressing arthritis/swelling in addition to the intestinal problems? Thoughts?
