Okay well I just got back from my colonoscopy at the cleveland clinc. All went well and they did not see anything during the scope. Afterwards I talked with my GI up there. She wants me to start HUMIRA once a week rather than every other week, how will that work with insurance? She wants to get me off of predisone and onto entocort. From all the test she said I have extensive inflamation throughout my small bowel but nothing visable in the colon. I meet with here in a month and if the HUMIRA is not working by them she wants me on tybasi(sp?) How is that given?

Tysabri is given through an infusion.  I hope you have good luck with the first choices.
Glad to hear from you
