My scope was Monday and they said they would have to research the Humira for me because of my Kidneys, they are aparently restricting my UC treatment options greatly. I just spoke to the nurse and she doesn't think that they are going to get the "go" on the Humira which leaves them looking into Remicade. I'm no longer freaked about
the drug itself . . . . it's the way it has to be given that poses problems for me. I have horribly bad veins and already have to be subjected to an IV for my anemia every month, now add Remicade and I have to get nabbed twice a month?
This is going to be sheer torture. It takes them 3-4 tries to get a line in me and I come out looking greusome when they are done blowing veins on me . . .now I will have to go about
every 2 weeks so I won't ever have a break from the bruising! Does the horror show with this disease ever stop? Just when you think you are ok and doing well something more demoralizing seems to come knock you down the few pegs you were able to struggle your way up to and then a few more just to add insult to the injury.
