Hi, all this is my first post. been a reader for a while. I have had UC for about
6 years now and 1.5 years since official diagnosis. Been thru every med includign remicade, entyvio, multiple rounds of steroids. My gi is a amazing and he got Xeljanz 5 mg bid approved for me even though its not fda approved yet and it worked like magic the first month. Been on it 2 months now and it has worn down some and scope today showed mild-moderate proctosigmoditiis. Only other thing that ahs worked in past is steroids and diet I feel also makes a huge difference for me. Please let me know fi any others have had experience with xeljanz. its a great oral option i believe and it has been very good for me. I hope it isn't wearing out in effectiveness but I cant be sure because without medication i have severe inflammation at baseline. Hoping FDA approves 10 mg bid in June and see where to go from there. Trying to avoid surgery is at all possible.
