I have been on 6mp for 10 months and off prednisone for 4 months. I am doing okay with 1-2 BM per day without any urgency. But I see blood 3-4 times in week. My GI has schedule appointment for colonoscopy and I am afraid if he sees inflamation, he might want me to go on biologics.
I can not increase 6mp (in fact I might have to lower it) as I have high level of TGN in blood test.My CBC and liver function are fine so my GI is continuing with it.
I have been using canasa and rowasa often. It helps but does not stop blood completely. Do you think my symptoms are bad to consider biologics? I am mentally prepared but the thought that I am one step closer to surgery scares me.
