I went to see specialist a couple of weeks ago as I was having a flare. Seems like azathioprine has stopped being as effective.
My options were to try a biologic or take steroids with aza to get things under control. However, the specialist said that he would be wanting to get me off aza as I had not had the EBV and there was a risk of getting "a very aggressive" form of lymphoma.
I can't find anything about this increased risk online. Does anyone know anymore about this?
I don't know whether I'm making the right choice with biologic, but I'm also terrified of the lymphoma thing... I hate this disease
