It's been awhile since I've visited our forum. I've missed all the great advice and shared experiences. I had surgery 2-weeks ago for an inguinal hernia. I get to have surgery again next week for a new abdominal wall hernia that was caused by the first hernia repair. I also have C-Diff - again. I'm sure I'm not alone in having to get a 2nd surgery caused by the first. Anybody else have a similar situation?
My GI doc is also wanting me to switch over to Cimzia. I've been on Humira for a couple of years now. I'm not sure I'm wanting to make any changes right now. What do you think?
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.
