Started having issues in '92; lived with it until October '05 when I had a constant low grade fever for 3 months. CT scan showed Ulcerative Colitis. Capsule Endoscopy, Colonoscopy and upper GI November '05 gave diagnosis of Crohn's and GERD. I have ulcers from my mouth to my bottom and have had fissures/fistulas. Tried Prednisone, Azasan, Asacol and others with no improvement. Started Remicade infusions February 2006. Doing better but still don't feel 100%.
Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength
Diagnosed with severe Crohn's colitis in May 2005. I deal with daily arthritis ALL over my body, cystic acne, & fibromyaglia. Have taken Imuran, Remicade, TPN, Colozal, Entocort, Flagyl, PamineForte, Cipro, Dicyclomine, Prednisone, Asacol, Prevacid, and the list goes on. Taking low amounts of Pred now & 3600mg of Asacol currently...Can't wait till I can get back on Remicade, my miracle drug!
