So went to the GI after my ER visit last night. He put me back on pred at 40mg and upped the date I start HUMIRA to thursday of this week rather than september 10th. Today though I have also had dark read blood in my stool for everyone Ive had, I was told to eat only soft foods, absolutly no hard foods!, and was given levsin I think for the gut spasms that caused so much I was crying on the floor. Im still really concerned about starting HUMIRA though and the blood is really disconserting.

I am not on Humira but a lot of people here are. Maybe one of them can come by and give you some advice.

Sorry you are having a rough time....

I am not on Humira but my GI is thinking of doing a scope sooner than anticipated since i am still having joint issues and my left side is painful (since the surgeries it could be adhesions or flaring. As far as i know I have never had large bowel involvement but I did end up with toxic megacolon when my colon didnt awaken after my surgery in Feb. I was reversed from my ostomy in June. I am nervous about Humira just because I have never been able to give myself any type of shot (made my exhusband give me my imitrex shots when I use to have them). My current husband gets freaked out with needles or anything medical so he wouldnt be of much help if I had to use Humira.
