Hello everyone
I had my 7th Abatacept infusion last week, and so far, everything seems to be going well.
I am 3 months into the maintenance period, so I have 9 more months to go before I go onto the open-label.
My symptoms havent really changed much in the last 2 months, which is good as I am still having around 3 or 4 BMs a day with no blood. Which for me, is as good as it gets.
Still get fatigued though not as much as before and the back pains seem to have disappeared too.
Take care
Abatacept Trial since Feb 2008 (Maintenance Period)
Back on Pred - 3mg - Steroid Dependent :-(
Azathioprine 150mg
