Had the same information sent to me via e-mail from the IGuard RX program I'm part of. Good information. However, it does pertain to "children & adolescents" and since I'm neither one of those, I'm not going to let it stress me. I trust my GI doc to do what's in my best interest. She's the best!!
Diagnosed 13+ years ago.
Been in remission for short periods of time but each time I come out of remission my disease seems to have spread. No longer isolated in my ileum, now from stomach down to rectum.
