Hello. I was at the docs yesterday and although I am feeling better than I did back in December, the doctor is encouraging me to have these anti TNF injections. He said because I was young when diagnosed, it is best to go on these injections to have a better chance of not having my bones bend. I took home the booklet thingy he gave me (it's all in Japanese) and my husband and I looked though it. It seems like a fairly new treatment that helps but the downside being the higer risk of getting malignancies and liver failure. Also it is SO EXPENSIVE! Frankly, I would do anything to stay mobile but I am also terrified that I may die from the treatment itself rather than the disease. What do you think?? I am confused and alarmed.
