I went to my Doctors today and I hadn’t gone to see him in ten years as he was not on my insurance most of them. He works at John Hopkins (what a great place with excellent patient service) and I went to see about getting a reversal and getting on the new drugs
Like Rimadal and Humira to see if I could live a life with out my illiostomy.
He looked at both stomas and said they look very good and the fact that I have been with out any meds for 10 years and no flair ups and the new meds the chances look good for me to get the reversal.
I ask him if the new meds help keep the fistulas at bay and he said yes 2/3 patients with
fistulas do well with containing them (anyone with first hand knowledge).
I got my blood work done today and on Jan 2nd I will have a up GI done and MRI.
He referred me to a Gastro/Colorectal surgeon that is going to look at my large intestine
and dilate my sphincter and check for colon cancer.
How is everyone doing with the new drugs and fisulas?
