Female, 23, Ulcerative colitis (pancolitis) since 1999; GERD; gastritis; osteopenia in femur head & lumbar spine from long term prednisone use...Current Meds: Lexapro 10mg, Sulfasalizine 3000mg/day, Azasan 100mg
I just got mine yesterday. So far so good!
My GI told me to take a flu shot every year. Avoid the flu mist. It is a live vaccine. I have never felt bad after taking a flu shot.
I've just had a letter from the GP to ask me to go for one as I'm immunosuppressed.I haven't caught anything, not even a tiny cold since going onto Azathioprene 18 months ago. I am surrounded by sickies at work and still don't seem to catch anything going, so wondering if I should stay as I am, unprotected? What does anyone else think? History of ill health before UC diagnosis is zilch.
UC since 2005, aged 42 at diagnosis. 2 1/2 years mostly on prednisolone, phased out February 08. Now just 150mg Azathioprene and 750mg Mesalazine. Slow transit, no bleeding since June, but LOADS OF WIND!!!! OUCH!!!!!!
