Hello Forum members:
Having run the gamut of biologics from Humira to Remicade to Entyvio, and am now on Stelara since early December 2016. Response has been none/minimal, yet - but hoping it kicks in.
As all of you will understand, this condition is extremely disheartening/depressing .. and more so, when treatments do not deliver symptom relief. There are many times when I feel that this battle - since '93 - has taken a lot out of me, and whether I can soldier on.
At this point, I feel compelled to start exploring treatments in other countries that are more holistic in nature, incorporate other treatments that haven't been released in the US yet, and those with good success rate.
Please advise if you know of clinics, hospitals of this nature ... I will follow up.
My quality of life over the last 2-3 years has been very poor, everyday is a challenge. Immediate family (hubby and two teenagers 19 and 16) try their best, but everyone is impacted.
Female, 48 yrs
Dx in '93.
Re-sections in '93 and '07
Currently on Stelara
