I just think of Humira as the end-all drug. If it doesn't work then surgery is next. Maybe that's not true but it's what I think. My GI wants to take me off Colazal & put me on Humira. My last colonoscopy showed active inflammation and evidently my CD has progressed since my last colonoscopy.
What are you opinions/experiences about going from a "simple" 5-ASA drug to Humira? Aren't there a lot of things inbetween I could try?
I admit I haven't felt great but I've felt much better than I did last year. I don't know...I'm just nervous about what to do...especially about going to an injection drug.
