I suffered with ulcerative proctitis. 6MP kept me in a two year remission, but then started to flare yearly, then twice a year. Remicade failed after third infusion and no change after being on Humira for three months. I became prednisone dependent and had my surgery last June 28th...total colectomy with end ileo. My GI doctor tended to believe that if Remicade didn't do the trick, he doubted Humira would. But, decided to try all measures before surgery anyway. He wanted me to try Cimzia, but I had had enough.
Eva Lou....my surgeon wanted me off Humira for at least six weeks before he would operate. So, if you are anticipating surgery, better check with your doctor on this. Maybe I will send you a separate post on this.
