Diagnosed with Chron's, what's next?

Tue, December 19, 2023 11:46 AM

Had a colonoscopy last week and they found inflammation and erosion scattered throughout the colon and terminal ileum. Got prescribed Asacol HD but the insurance hasn't covered it yet. I finished an antibiotic cycle before the procedure, some symptoms have ceased like diarrhea and bloating. Stool is still streaked with blood. BMs and digestion are still painful. Lost 13 lbs so far and have no appetite. Anyone have a similar prognosis? Advice welcome

I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease in January has your doctor said anything about Entyvio or any other medication until you start treatment for it
