I have officially had crohn's for 7 1/2 years. Today I reached a milestone of having my 15th colonoscopy! Wew hew!
Anyway, with winter approaching I wanted to get some feedback in regards to the flu shot. I am on Humira and recently chose to take myself off of 6-MP. I work with chidren and low and behold never get sick. Even though I have pretty severe crohn's, I am otherwise very healthy. My friends at work are always so surprised when we have horrible colds, and viruses running rampid through the school and I stay well. I eat very healthy and take lots of supplements, specifically cod liver oil and Seacure.
Is there anyone else out there that opts out for the flu shot??? All of my doctor's are all over my case about this. Do you think I am just asking for trouble and have just been lucky? Thank you!
