I did not want to take Metho,Imuran, 6mp, Remicade or Humira because of all the side effects but when my GI told me that my Crohns was back after a short lived remission from surgery, I figured I better listen to my GI and hit this thing hard.
Am I concerned about
the side effects? Yes! But I'm more concerned about
Crohns doing excessive damage and having to have surgery again. Remeber surgery isn't a cure!!!
Good luck with your decision.
