Entyvio did nothing for me, in fact I went from left sided to pan colitis, and suffered horribly from joint and muscle pains. It totally affected quality of life. Every time I suggested maybe the Entyvio was the problem the doctors shrugged and wrote another prescription. My last dose was Dec 30, 2019 and I feel so much better!! My UC symptoms are about the same as they were on Entyvio but I have no joint or muscle pain. I was supposed to start Stelara a few weeks after the surgery I had last week but I think that will get pushed out. I am staying home except for trips to get groceries, which is pretty much how things were before Coronavirus so that's ok with me. So I guess what I am trying to say is maybe you'll be ok without it for awhile at least. I think I have suffered more from pretty much every drug I have tried than from the UC itself. I'm starting to consider no more drugs and was going to suggest I defer starting Stelara until after my next colonoscopy, whenever the heck that may be now.
Stay well everyone!
