Thanks again for everyone's insight. I wasn't receiving email notifications, so I didn't see the latest replies. Anyway, I saw my GI today. He's keeping me on Humira for now and adding a hydrocortisone enema (never done that, so that should be an adventure ::sarcasm, of course:
. The Uceris hasn't put a dent in my symptoms, which are mild to moderate at best. He's not that concerned about
my antibody levels, because my trough was good. Plus, my last colonoscopy was vastly improved from previous ones and the inflammation is only in the very last section of my colon. The theory is Humira was working for me, so we should be able to get it back on track. I'm skeptical, but that's not unusual for me. The initial problem was delays in insurance approvals after I changed jobs and I missed maybe 3 doses?
To follow-up on the blood clot risk, I did learn from him today that as IBD patients we do have a higher risk of blood clots, in general, which is why Xeljanz is even riskier for us. This was news to me.
