Well, I still have intestinal bleeding and it is getting worse. Humira does not seem to be working. My Doctor is going to do a flexible sigmoidoscopy to see whats going on. I hope I can get this disease under control soon.

Good Luck! It's not pleasant but over quickly,just make sure they prep you properly as mine was inconclusive as they gave me one enema about half an hour before my scope and it did not work so consequently they couldnt get a full picture as I had stools in my colon still!
