Oh my gosh, that's my doc that wrote that. I start on Humira tomorrow and I will not be put on anything else along with that.
I just have to say, this man is very smart and knows what he is doing and knows what he is talking about
. He discovered my stricture back in May that my other GI failed to notice or acknowledge. I had my ileum removed and have recovered mostly from it.
This GI however is one of the #1 docs at the #2 Center for Digestive Diseases. And most articles I've read, the chances of developing lymphoma are greater for those who are taking either Remicade or Humira along with either Imuran or 6mp.
But everyone needs a better quality of life and its up to only you to make that decision once you know the facts.
