11 Feb < > THE END OF MY MEDICINAL ROPE? Posted In : Crohn's Disease, Surgery 11 Feb Ryan 1 Comment EmailLike this:Like Loading... 1 Comment Jeannie Reply What a nightmare you are living. When my 41 year old son was first diagnosed with Crohn’s two years ago, I thought good, they’ll give him a pill and he’ll be fine. That obviously was before I knew anything about Crohn’s. He has gone the Remicade route, prednisone, and is now on Humira–for a few months now. His worse symptoms were when he was initially diagnosed—diarrhea, bleeding, total exhaustion, etc. He never really had any horrible pain–thank God. His doctor is also shocked by the lack of symptoms he shows. The only way the doctor can tell what is going on is by CT scans and colonoscopies, then he is shocked by how severe his Crohn’s is. So far, no surgeries. Remicade did nothing for him, so now he is using Humira. Not sure when he’ll go in to be rechecked. I’m so sorry for all that you have gone through. It is a horrible disease. I did talk to a doctor once who does research, and he said that there was no doubt in his mind that Crohn’s would be curable in Brad’s (my son) lifetime. This doctor is a pediatrician, but he is also a research doctor. I certainly do hope he is correct. Best of luck to you. Post a Comment Click here to cancel reply.
