I had surgery 10 years ago due to fistulas. Basically was doing great until 3 months ago developed an obstruction. I was given bowel rest and put on Entocort which has helped.
I saw my doctor yesterday and he wants to do a small bowel x-ray as well as a colonoscopy to see what is really going on inside. Also wants me off of the Entocort as he said it is not effective for long term use. He mentioned 6 MP to help either treat my Crohn's or keep in remission.
What are people's thoughts on this? I worry about supressing my immune system and developing other diseases. I had a good 10 years without any medication. Is this extreme or does it make sense?
Thanks for your thoughts.
