You shouldn't and hopefully you will be okay with only missing a couple of days.

it does have a cumulative effect so don't miss to many. you could always get your GI to call in a script where you are if you are too worried, but I wouldn't worry about two days.
Bad fissure Feb 2005. Started Remicade 2006. Fissure #1 healed, now deal with smaller fissure that comes and goes. Clean scope 2009 except for fissure. Also on Pentasa.

I just had a similar problem with my 6MP. I missed about a week and half. I really didn't notice a change.

Never had any side-effects after stopping Imuran or 6-mp. They're not dangerous drugs to stop suddenly, unlike steroids.
