Hi CJ, You have had a rough time as you say, they didn't have the meds and treatment they have now. Of course, this is subjective as it is a vey individual illness and what treatment suits one person, may not suit another. I know that from ,my own experience of bad reactions to meds : Pancreatitis because of one . I am pleased to hear you are more settled as I am at the moment, and feeling better. I hope you now keep well. Kind regards.
