Fitzy- You are absolutely right. I hope to be one of those trail blazers someday!
Chronie 42- What if I had to be on this medication for the next 3-4 years? I can afford to wait but my Husband is 16 years older than I am...I don't want him having his first baby when he's 50! If I can be off of this med in a year or so then I have no problem waiting but I can't have my life on hold for 3-4 years. If I decide that it is not worth the risk then I won't do it, but I need to make an informed decision.
gacrohns- I have a fistula and 2 fissures. My fistula is right above my butt hole and it doesn't attach to any other organ. It goes from inside the rectum to the skin. My 2 fissures are what is killing me now. I hardly ever remember that I have a fistula. What got to me was that she did not tell me not to get pregnant or wait a while until the fistula & fissures heal before I get pregnant, she doesn't want me to try and get pregnant while on remicade. I would completely understand about
waiting until they heal but that is not her concern.
Nanners- Thanks! I do have a fistula but like I said it's not what is killing me, the 2 fissures are! I am going to get a few other opinions.
Stef- I will e-mail you, thanks!
Ginger- Good luck and let us know..hope it gets better for you!
Ok, now that I have typed all of this I feel like it is pointless because I just got a call from my OBGYN's office and I asked about
the Remicade and the fact that I have mild cervical dysplacia... they said that the Remicade could effect my Dysplasia and make it worse which means turning into severe dysplacia and possibly cervical cancer. They are counting on my immune system to battle the pre-cancerous cells and an immune suppressing drug would do just the opposite! =( God really wants to test me lately...I am really going to have to send him an e-mail about
