Hi Everyone i usually post on the UC forum but i am hopping over here to seek help for a friens. My friend Linda has had Crohns about
a year now ithout really gaining remission.She was on a maintenance dosage of 30mgs Pred up until last Friday when she was rushed to hospital really ill with pain and blood loss. She has been getting IV pred and the docs started her on Im,uran and Aziathroprine(unsure of spelling sorry) today. Is it true that it can take a long time for these drugs to start working. Its just that the docs have told her that if she doesn't respond soon that she will have to go through surgery.
Is there anything else they could be trying. I'm not sure if those with Crohns take different supplements than us UCers, but if you do let me know please. I am going to see her tomorrow and would be grateful of any suggestions that you have.
She is only a young girl and i would hate to see her going through surgery so soon after diagnosis.
Thank you all for your help.
