Ipoop- are you in full remission? How long have you been on your cocktail? do you plan on staying on it for as long as it works?
I believe myself to be in symptomatic-remission, 1 formed bm a day without urgency, blood, mucus, etc. Although, I have not yet had a scope to confirm whether it is clinical-remission. I was on just lialda and rowasa for 1.5 years and then the flare from hell struck. Afterwhich, I added both 6mp (been on it 1.5 years) and then remicade (been on it for a year now). Yeah, I plan to stay the course as long as it works. Worstcase scenario, I know I can get my 6mp dose increased, remi dose increased, and the time between infusions reduced. And as you said, there is always entvyio or surgery. I respond very slow to uc meds. Noticed a improvement a week after second remi infusion, a much bigger improvement a week after my 3rd infusion, and gradual improvement ever since.
