I am new to the forum,
someone in my support group informed me about this website, figured I would give it a shot!!
The year of 2007 was the worst year of my life!
I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis (Pancolonic) in January, followed by 5 hospitalizations for UC and diagnosed in July with a rare liver disease - Primary Scerlosing Cholangitis...I had a liver biopsy to confirm the disease, my liver has just recently approached cirrhosis....
I had heard that when you have liver disease it is difficult to conceive...does anyone know of this? I also heard that you cannot try to conceive a baby when you are on Remicade that you have to be off the medication for at least 3 months? Has anyone conceived while on Remicade and their baby had birth defects, etc!
I need your advice on what to do, I do not want to miss out on being a parent, it's been my life's dream...I want to have a baby while I can and while my liver is functioning okay before it starts to decline in cirrhosis..
THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!!
