Hello Steve,Hello everyone/anyone. I'm new on here, just joined. I needed to reach out as things are getting worse for me. I was diagnosed with Chrohn's around 6 years ago. I've only had to take pred for 2 moderate flare ups in that time period. I've been on Lialda for about 5 years for the lesser issues. I have a very stressful job and married with 3 kids. I'm 35 yrs old. My 2 flare ups were around the holidays (stress induced?) the pred took care of last years flare but isn't doing anything now. Im bleeding and havent had a regular bm in about 2 months. My GI specialist wants to discuss imuran as an option. After reading some posts on here, I'm kind of freaking out. I don't normally freak out. Also my mother had non-hodgkins lymphoma....so I already have a risk factor for that side effect. Anyone have any nuggets of info to pass along? Thanks

I’m new to the forum also I had an upper GI endoscopy yesterday; the physician removed and biopsied a nodule in the lower esophagus and a few gastric polyps. I am also curious about the physicians’ impressions. I wanted to know if you are any members of the forum can provide insight on the meaning of “gastric mucosal abnormality characterized by erythema secondary to aspirin and meloxicam”. Thanks!
