Stelara


Sun, August 11, 2019 9:47 AM

Hi..my 16 year old son just received his first dose of Stelara in the hospital on Wednesay. He was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease in October 2018, placed on steriods and began Humira in November. He was doing really, in February his numbers were great and he was feeling really good. He had started to gain some weight and we were very optomistic. In April the diarrhea returned, and has never left. The doctor added steriods and increased his Humira to weekly, since the dosage can not be increased because to his weight. No change. Now we are waiting and wondering when he we might see some relief with this new medication.
