I had my second resection back in 2017 and since then I've been on Inflectra (8 weeks), 6-MP, Cholystremine and Immodium. Lately, I guess because of COVID, I've been looking into biologics and other medications to combat Crohn's. By the way, since 2017 I've had no flare ups and my GI doctor believes I'm in remission. I've been eating pretty much anything, I am able to control my bowel habits by going once a day. On the other hand, I have been experiencing lots of anxiety because of the many articles I've read about deaths due to people who've been on Inflectra and 6-MP. I'm so worried. I am the sole provider for my family and I still relatively young, 44. I am worried about nothing here? Or, should I consult my GI doctor to see if I can begin to eliminate medications such as 6-MP.
