So I have had crohns for almost 4 years and have not ever been able to get things under control. It's mainly located in my terminial illium and small bowel. I have tried all the basic drugs. I am allergic to 6-MP, Methotrexate, Immurane, Cipro and Bentyl. They all have caused me pancreatitis - not fun at all. I have also tried Remicade - which after 1 year i built up antibodies to. I am now on Humira and prednisone. I used Humira for about 8 months and then stopped because i felt it wasnt working however the doctors are telling me its my only hope. Well that or surgery. I need advice - is surgery worth it. I hear people say once you cut you will cut again. Is that true? How many of you have had complications? I am scared to give in to surgery because of the side effects, complications but am at the point where i am worried i am doing my body more harm by not having surgery. I take pain meds almost daily and have such sever pain that its affecting my job. Advice from anyone would be greatly appreciated. I just want 1 day to be a normal day. I just want to feel like a normal person.
