Not to be a spelling ****, but the word is "stricture" not "stricter"
I don't know much about
them other than that they are caused by inflammation.
What is the extent of your UC? Is it pancolitis, left side only, something else?
Are you on any other UC meds? It can take Entyvio a while to work so you need something to help until it does.
Doctor's offices can get really busy so sometimes a little poke to check on the progress of getting Entyvio approved can go a long way. What meds were you on previously? Insurance often requires step therapy before authorizing Entyvio, meaning you would need to have tried other immune suppressants first.
If you make a signature on your Profile page listing meds and diagnosis it's helpful for people who can offer advice for you.
Hope you feel better soon!
