Yipee
 
 
My consultant told me today that I appear to be doing really well on infliximab and that my blood tests are good, I can even come off asacol. The doc at the hospital told my liver enzymes were raised again and in fact they were only one point above the normal range. My consultant says this is fine. Great that stops me worrying.
 
Ive even lost a few pounds whish is great seeing as Im one of those elusive fat crohnies.
 
Thought I would share my good news, there is light at the end of the tunnel 
Diagnosed 2005.
 
Current medication  -  infliximab infusions, ranitidine, ferrous sulphate, Vitamin B12 injections, asacol
