I was diagnosed with Crohns about eight years ago after a long battle with what my doctor initially diagnosed as IBD. I have been in remission for about seven years with no sign of inflamation (as seen from my colonoscopy). I've been on asacol and 6-MP this whole time and my doctor is thinking of stopping my meds completely. I feel great. Although I don't want to be on such powerful meds for the rest of my life, I'm just scarred of getting sick again. Getting sick was such a horrible expereience (with numeous hospital stays) and I can't afford that now that I have a full time job and a mortgage. I'm 27 years old and recently married. I also don't want to be on meds if I get pregnant. Does anyone have experience with getting off meds that would like to share some advise with me?
