Hey Teddybear! I'm cheering for you! I've been off my Humira & Imuran for 7 weeks now awaiting dental surgery. It's pretty scary isn't it. Just to know I'll have to be off everything for at least 6 weeks after my surgery has been freaking me out too! However, I have been paying extra attention to my diet and have been playing around with macadamian nut oil, rice flour and various recipes this week. Within 3 days of stopping my drugs I was getting symptomatic and my psorasis was rearing it's head again. Having said that, the further away I stay from dairy, except yogurt, meats, except chicken & fish and everything with wheat or gluten products the better I get. I am soooo proud of myself today....I was the goose that laid the golden egg TWICE! In the same day! All of the GAS is gone too! I never knew my stomach could be so quiet! My skin is beginning to look better too. Hang in there and I hope you get your approval soon! Humira has worked wonders for me with alot less side effects of the Remicade. I have to admit I don't miss the injections. Had to take my B12 injection today and was a whimp about it since I haven't had to inject Humira every week. When you do get the Humira, get the ice packs ready 'cause that stuff really bites you back.
