I'm brand new here, and want to thank you all for what I have learned so far.
I spent 12 days in hospital a couple weeks ago. Diagnosis is Crohn's. I hope to return to work in two weeks.
I am taking Azasan 25 mg, Prednisone 30 mg, and Asacol 2400 mg., along with a prescription iron and some other supplements.
I just started the Azasan 5 days ago. Dr. explained it will hopefully enable me to come off Prednisone. I had bloodwork done that same day. Today, Dr. told me that my Hemoglobin came back at 10.2, which is where it has more or less been. But, he said my White Blood Cells dropped to 3100. My concern is that he said this might cause me not to be able to increase the Azasan, and the Prednisone is really what I want to get off of.
I am wondering, have any of you had experience with a lowering White Blood Count with Crohn's?
I went back this afternoon for more bloodwork, and will get the results tomorrow.
