improvement after taking Entyvio

After years and years of trying to improve my Crohn's with diet changes I finally decided to start a doctor recommended treatment. This wasn't an easy decision for me as I am very reluctant to follow medical advice if not supported by enough evidence. In case of Entyvio, based on the clinical studies published on their website it is only 17% better than placebo. It just didn't make sense to me to go through one year+ of injections and risk side effects with such a small chance of getting into remission. There were lots of factors that made me change my mind, but one of them was reading this forum and getting advice from other members.

I am glad I did. I am after my 3rd shot and already feel an improvement. I haven't done my bloodwork yet, but I do feel way better. Not 100% back to normal, but hopefully this is just the beginning. Anyway, just wanted to share my story....
