Well today was my check up and it wasn't as bad as i thought it would be. I got my new doctor and hes pretty good with me , so that's all good so far. We decided were going to take action and get this thing under control.
They discovered that i have become partially immune to the drug i am currently on; Imuran. Meaning im doing well with the drug and the drug is stable, how ever its not doing its full job. So, now were going to do biologic infusions. We havent figured out what one we are going to do. There is a study that Macmaster hospital is doing with this one drug and if its ready in time for me we can do it for free covered by the hospital. But if its not ready we will have to do one of the other biologic infusion drugs. I might have to be in the hospital for 4-6 hours every few weeks for the infusion through intervenus or every month injected through a needle. Like i said were not sure what the exact plan is but i'm just thankful it's nothing like the feeding tube agian. *huge relief* If it came to the point i would do the tube feeding agian becuase it works SO WELL, but when your going through school and summer, it gets in the way. how ever it did get me a few advantages at the time lol ( special seeting at the backstreet Boys Unbreakable concert! ) lol but it does have its downfalls especially at my age.
well all went good! just thought i'd keep up to date from my last entry. THANKS!
