So i got released from the hospital one week ago and i've been trying to ind out as much as possable about
UC. My first flare was a terrable experence that i'm not stoked to go through again so i quit smoking (hard seeing as i'm dealing with the stress of this new addition to my life), i've been resurching diet as well as life style changes nessasary to get back to normal life. my one big question is about
the strength of my immune system on the drugs i'm on. I've been told by the pharmasist that the humira as well as my pills make me weak to germs and virus's, thus i will easily get sick. Hes suggested compleat and constant disifection on my home, as well as constant hand sanitizing. So i am basicly i'm a prisoner in my own home, i've spent 23 and a half hours at home a day since i've been out of the hospital (cabin fever setting in). Then one of the people treating me in the hospital phoned to check in and told me this was over kill, that i could go into public and not fear become ill, and risking the quality of my treatment. This is all very new to me and i'm just trying to accept it, i don't want to let this take over my life but at the moment it has. Has anybody been on these drugs? I have to wait to see my GI for a few weeks, so until i can ask him any info would be so helpful.
thanks for you time.
