I have a 14 year old son with crohns.
For almost 2 years. He has been ok on azathioprine, but about 6 weeks ago started to lose weight again and started not to eat much. Regular doc appointment at hospital showed his bloods weren't great. Turns out he is in a flare up! Had a liver biopsy last week and is due to start remicade on Wednesday this week. I am so very worried. Should he try something else first? Does anyone have good stories about remicade? Long term effects? I keep reading all the hideous stuff and am working myself sick! Help!
