Re: Crohn's Disease
I am suffering from Crohn's just like you. And I am fearful of my lifestyle in the future. I had an abscess that formed in August, and my colorectal surgeon drained it and put seton tubes in it. After that was finished, the healing process was very, VERY slow, due to the Crohn's. My gastroenterologist prescribed Entocort first, which is a mild drug used to treat the disease, but for months of taking it, it has had little to no effect on me. The infection is still there, and they are going to use a last resort treatment called remicade. My infusion is scheduled for tomorrow. Apparently it's a gastroenterologist's final solution before doing more surgery.
So, if you see your doctor, hopefully he has talked to you about the possibility of drugs such as entocort, prendizone, and Remicade to treat your Crohn's disease. Each one being successively more potent.
