I could do with some advice or any ideas you guys have.
I was diagnosed with UC approximately 18 months ago.
I've been on so many different treatments in that time.
I have been and still on Prednisolone.
I was put onto Biologics at the beginning of this year in the form of infliximab. 8 months later it turned out I was a Primary non-responder 🙁.
And so I was the put on ustekinumab (stelara). Now with my preds slowly being withdrawn, I'm in a flare again 🙁.
I've spent so so much time in hospital this year driving my stress levels sky high.
I am scared that now Ustekinumab doesn't seem to be working what's next?
Do any of you know of any other biologic alternatives?
I had an appointment with a Stoma nurse when I was in hospital and although the thought of being symptom free compels me, surgery and such a change scares the hell out of me!! Especially only being 39 years of age.
