I have Crohns Colitis so the majority of my disease is in my colon. I don't think, there's much, if any disease, in my small intestine..at the moment, but too have severe disease in my rectum. It's at the very end of it and the Dr prescribed Cortifoam so we'll see if that works. I had surgery about 9 years ago and apparently I don't have much colon left, so it would be a total colectomy, which seems extreme. Stelara seems a little scary, but at the same time, all meds are scary especially when you start exhausting all your options! What exactly is an iloestomy? I refuse to try Tsybari due to it's side effects.
Adler- Thank you! Have you had any side effects? From the little I've started reading about it, it seems like getting an infection is the most common side effect. Glad it's helped put you in remission!!
