Hope everyone are doing fine. I am posting in long time. I have had scope done yesterday and found mild to moderate inflammation only in transverse colon. Rectum, sigmoid and descending colon healed completely compared to mild to moderate inflammation last time, thanks to enemas. I assume inflammation in transverse colon is due to enemas not reaching there and orals not doing their job. Despite the significant progress my Dr put me on azathioprine as he says having long standing inflammation is not good. But when i googled about azathioprine there are horrible side effects including lymphoma and leukemia. So, my question is how many of you are taking aza and what are the side effects? is it worth taking and benefits outweigh risks?
