    Surgery Advice Please

    Well, NOW I talk to the GI Doctor again and he says I may have to have my colon TOTALLY REMOVED to ward off cancer! Says the lesion in the descending colon is an adenoma or an adenomatous polyp which is likely to become malignant. Also suspects a tumor developing in the ascending colon. He...

    No treatment

    I've tried many treatments, none really did much for me, except Prednisone, which you can't/shouldn't take indefinitely. For a few months now, I've not taken anything but multivitamin, calcium with vitamin D, and folic acid. My condition doesn't seem to be changing. Anyone else doing nothing?

    The Doc wants me to do Methotrexate. 25mg injections 1/week for 12 weeks then if it seems to work, 15mg/week in pill form. Anybody have experience with this?

    How did it start?

    What is your experience with 6mp?

    I've been on this for 6+ months and it does not seem to be working. Now he wants me to go on Remicade. The 6mp seems to hurt my appetite if I take over 100mg/day. It seems to work better when taking it in the morning. Still, I'm going 6-9 times a day.

    What is your experience with Remicade and/or Humira?

    My doctor wants me to do this, I'm looking for real world info. How long does it REALLY take for each treatment? How much was your co-pay? How does it make you feel? How does it work for you overall?
