I have had Crohn’s for 31 years, and UC for 6 years and have taken mesalamine, Humira, and one treatment of Remicade. The mesalamine provided the most relief for many years but has stopped reliably controlling my symptoms. The Remicade did not work, and I had serious side effects with Humira. My doctor wants me to begin Stelara. I am anxious about taking Stelara for fear of what life will be like living immunocompromised. My husband and I babysit our young grandchildren (ages 2 & 4) once a week, and we are the backup carers when the kids are too sick to go to daycare or preschool. I can see masking when we care for them during sick days, but I don’t want to mask at other times. We love hosting friends and family on holidays - many children and adults sharing food and conversation in our small home. Since Covid, we don’t eat out as much as we used to, but we still enjoy occasional restaurant meals. I am an active volunteer at a museum and plan on volunteering at my grandchild’s school next year. I am concerned about how Stelara will affect my ability to do all of these things. How do you share your life with others while immunocompromised?
