I work in a health clinic and don't seem to get sick like everyone else. I had never thought much about it until your posting. I always just figured I was building up immunities every day by working here. (I've been here for over 7 yrs now) I have been on Prednisone for the first time since April. I hope my luck doesn't run out like with what happened to you both. I did develop C-Diff, I wonder if that's from the Prednisone? Hmmmm......?
Diagnosed 13+ years ago.
Been in remission for short periods of time but each time I come out of remission my disease seems to have spread. No longer isolated in my ileum, now from stomach down to rectum.
Current Medications for the Crohns: Humera 40mg injections every other week, Imuran 150mg, Levsin, Welchol 625mg, Prednisone 10mg(started weaning off, now going back up in dosing).Canesa suppositories, Calcium, Acidophilus & Potassium
Previous Medications I've been on: Asocal, Pentasa, Flagyl, Cipro & Entocort
Misc: I recently joined a local crohns disease support group that meets monthly. It has been great talking to and meeting other people who share the same disease. I hope to continue gaining insight through this forum as well.
