Hi, I haven't been on Healing Well for a while because things have been pretty good with my UC. However, I'm now getting ready for surgery to my ankle and from what the dr has said, I have to be off of Humira (which I've taken religiously for 4 yrs--every 2 wks). He said I must be off for 8 wks, which means 4 injections. My gastro dr is out of town til Monday, 9/19, and just in case, I did not take my shot yesterday, but I don't know what I'm doing to my UC. I know if I eat the wrong food, or over eat, I'll have what is lovingly called "a flare up" so, I start popping Immodium.
Can anyone tell me, what would be the effect if I'm off of Humira for 8 wks? Or, even just 1 wk?
I take 4 Lialda, daily; yogurt with VSL#3DS daily and 1 align capsule a day...all to keep the good bacteria healthy in my gut. Right now, I'm also taking an anti-biotic Ceflex for UTI and Flagyl to avoid Cdiff.
I'd appreciate any input.
