I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease 8 yr. ago and was treated with Pentasa, which I'm still taking ongoing. When I had my daughter 3 yr later I had a flare up and needed to go on steroids. Thankfully that worked and i didn't have any problems till about
now, 5 yr later. I'm currently in active disease stage and Pentasa isn't working. I have been prescribed Entocort 3mg, 3 caps a day in the morning but I am not getting overly better, maybe just a bit.
I have been very lucky so far. I'm 33 yr. old and want to have another child. I'm on hold with that one for a while. I feel like i'm going through it all over again. I'm testing all the foods that I was fine eating before and now it causing problems. Anyhow, stress is really big problem in this disease and I am learning to stay positive:)
