Don't quite understand. Are you saying you don't have active disease at the moment? Since you are on Pred and pain killers, what are your symptoms?
I agree you don't have to have active Crohn's to go on these medications if you have had a lot of inflammation in the past that has caused scar tissue. It may prevent further inflammation and scar tissue but I didn't think they will work on the scar tissue that is already present?
My GI did mention Humira after I had surgery to remove a very significant and inflammed stricture in the colon. I am going to have an ultrasound done before we decide and even then I do not experience the usual Crohn's symptoms so will again not be an easy decision as to what medication to be on.
