My GI doc is an IBD specialist at a well known teaching hospital. I have his cell phone number and he answers text messages on the weekend. I also use the hospital portal system and get quick responses. I have had many phone conversations with this doctor as well. He is not getting paid for these conversations either. I got rid of the doctor that treated me the way your doctor is treating me. I would probably take the Humira if I were in your shoes. I would be more afraid of rocking the boat GI wise than getting the flu. You also said you used Tamiflu as well. Now you would be a great testament of someone on humira living with 2 people with the flu and not getting it!! That would give me great hope. Keep us posted.
I haven’t gotten the flu at this point. My daughter has been fever free since Thursday afternoon, so I’m hoping I’m in the clear by now. I’m still taking the tamiflu and I took my Humira injection on Saturday. My daughter had tested positive for flu B and rhinovirus (which is the common cold), I seem to have gotten the cold, but not the flu. Which I’ll take, since we’re leaving for Disney tomorrow.
I think the tamiflu probably helped, and my daughter was also on tamiflu, which I’ve read can decrease some of the virus shedding.
Hopefully everyone else is staying healthy!
