I was then told clearly immuran isn't working anymore( went on it last year, had my longest time without a flare up) so he wants me to think about Renicade, Humors or there are 3 clinical trials he will send me info on here in Roanoke.
I don't understand why GI's even discuss clinical trials when you still have proven options available. Like Remicade, Humira, Simponi, Cimzia, Stelara and even Cyclosporine plus others meds, combos.
I could see if you've tried a bunch of meds and they didn't work but you didn't want to go for surgery.
Remicade is the gold standard for UC Biologicals, there are many members here who are on it with success. It worked great for me for almost 5 years.
P.S. surgery isn't as bad as some people expect it to be, I was one of them and it was easier than I thought. Obviously you're not even close to that yet or possibly needing it ever.
