Well I never thought I would see the day. I saw my doctor today and he said the magic "R" word! I had an MRI Scan and all the fistulas in the colon have healed, th inflammation has gone and so has the narrowing. And to make things even better there is no sign of the crohns in the small intestine.
As you can imagine I am sooooooooooo happy tonight and now have found my miracle drug - Modulen! I am now starting to slowly introduce food but have decided that Modulen will be my main source of "food" for the foreseeable future.
Im soooooooooooooo happy!
24 year old male from London
Crohns since 2002, Colostomy in 2002 and Small Bowel Resection 2005
Have tried Infliximab (Remicade) and Adalimumab (Humira)
Numerous spells on Prednisolone 40mg, Suspected Abscess in June 2007 - treated with antibiotics
Flare up in Feb 09 resulted in 2 week hospital stay
Now out and on Modulen - no food for ideally 8 weeks ARGH!!!!!
Also on Azathioprine 125mg
