I am sorry to say that I have no suggestions for you regarding your question but I did want to wish you luck tomorrow at the doctors. Most of us crohnies suffer from D (myself included) instead of C and I think that maybe is why you haven't gotten any responses. I hate to see someone ask for help and not get any replies. I know mine isn't really helpful but I just wanted you to know that I am thinking of you and hope you start feeling better soon. Try to have a list of questions and some printouts about
the therapy you are interested in with you when you see the dr so you don't forget anything. Remember to speak up, you are the one in control of your health and the final decisions are always yours to make. Let us know how it goes.
