I hope I am not jinxing myself here....but my daughter has been off of 6MP for 2 days now and is doing SO much better.  yeah For the first time in a week she can walk without crutches.  idea  I noticed in another post someone mentioned 6MP & fluid retention - could this be why she still looks puffy even though she has been off of Prednisone for almost 3 weeks?  That would be great if being off the 6MP would also reduce her puffiness. wink
Please send us happy wishes that she continues to do OK without the 6MP turn

Gwen, that's great news! I hope the issue is gone for good for your daughter!!! Also, it seems like it took 3-4 weeks for my son's puffiness to completely subside after his prednisone, so hopefully you will see a difference real soon! I'll keep your daughter in my prayers!

I had joint issues with 6MP and with Remicade. I also started to react to the Remicade. Switched to Humira and haven't had any joint pain since. Crohn's doing ok.
