Good to know that Pannacioni approves and my GI (Dr. Kaplan) is a colleauge of his. I am doing very well on Methotrexate but then I never have had many symptoms of Crohn's. Even without side effects, I still do question taking that shot every week (for how long)? A few questions for my GI. He has never pressured me into taking anything, just recommends certain options. I do know a lot of people's views on here about
maintenance meds but wondering if a 5-ASA drug would be sufficient? Only thing you wouldn't know until possible damage was done.
As far as the clearance certificate from Rev Canada, we were told it could take from 6 months to a year?
lady, I live west of Red Deer. Sent to Red Deer for my first colonoscopy and Dr. Amanullah was my GI for awhile. He consulted with Dr. Pannacioni (my case was unusual in the fact that it looked so bad without my having symptoms) and referred to Calgary, where I have had surgery and doctored since. Who is your GI? A friend goes to a Dr. Hardy (?) there.
