so i went to GI yesterday and he is in the process of getting my recs over to the surgeon, i am really excited now and said i will do the surgery tomorrow if i could..
he was planning on giving me a remicade treatment just in case but after seeing me yesterday, he wants to just go ahead with the surgery..i look healthy, i am even a little overweight..
anyone know the process? do i meet with the surgeon one time and schedule the surgery? is it a long process?
24 year old guy, UC since I was 17
remicade for two years, worked OK but got married and was told it could cause birth defects so I quit feb 08. my wife reminded me that i still had D most of the time while on remicade.
Wanted to start a family Jan 09 so dr stopped 6mp, wife got preg in may so I am back on 6mp also lialda and 20 mg pred
starting back on at least one remicade IV to see if i can get some relief next week,
most likely having j-pouch surgery this year, within a couple months, so i can be healthy for my baby, meet with my dr about it august 10!
