I was put in the hospital on August 5th of 09, and was there for 2 weeks do to so much blood loss due to Crohn's that they had to give me a blood transfusion (2 bags of blood!). My GI doctor started me on Humira on August 13. After starting it, that day.....it immediatly started working. The blood and loose stools stopped. I got really lucky it worked so fast cause I was in so much pain. It is still currently working great for me. Although, I have been experiencing really bad hair loss, but my GI doctor says it's due the the tampering off Prednisone(I was on it on and off since August of 2007). They released me from the hospital on the 18th of August cause I was doing really well. I reccomend it, but everyones different. Some can handle it and some can't. Good luck :)
