For the j-pouch type surgery? Isn't it in 2 separate surgeries? I'm trying to figure out how much time I'd need to take off of work. I'd have it right now if I had the time but I don't have much leave or sick leave built up. I've had it for the last 3 1/2 to 4 years and it's become clear to me that there really aren't any decent medications to control it and there probably won't be anytime soon. I talked to a surgeon for a bit and he said about
1/3 do good, 1/3 do OK, and 1/3 do bad with surgery, is that accurate? What does bad entail after a surgery?
I've been off prednisone for about
a week after being on it 5 months and my colitis is starting to go bad again so I'm going back to 10mg. I need to start taking Humira again so hopefully I can get off the prednisone. I suggested this to my doctor last time but they never seem to listen and now it's going bad like I knew it would. Having to deal with this after starting a new job and trying to finish an academy that would otherwise be a breeze makes everything a major drag. I think I've had enough of my 20's destroyed from this, it can't be that bad after surgery right?
