It can take the Imuran a few months to work...I agree with Ivy, be sure to tell the doc. And like randynoguts said, there are other options before more surgery:
- you could try a higher dose of Imuran (the dose you are on is low)
- you could try biologics
- you could try changing your diet (but don't go off the med)
