I had my first infusion 3 weeks ago after failing Humira TOTALLY for 10 weeks (I actually got worse).
No issues at infusion and after 7 months of flaring, ughhhhh, I am seeing improvement! Am also tapering off prednisone so the Stelara is def doing the heavy lifting right now. Solid stools, no more cramping, still have urgency esp in the AM but that is usually the last thing to wrap up....starting Canasa suppositories to try and heal that last end section.
I am really fatigued though, anyone else? Could just be the disease, being sick for so long. But I really feel it more in the past 3 weeks. I mean, I can get out of bed etc, but can only do one BIG thing a day like the grocery store, or laundry, or cleaning and I need to sit down and chill!
So far so good, and everyone is different. Good luck!
