I was very hesitant to try this new drug after being off almost any kind of medicine for my Crohns for over 5 years. The side effects of meds like Entyvio are super scary and the one that made me the most hesitant was the rare brain infection that can possibly happen with Entyvio, where you can become disabled or possibly die because of it. No one can blame a person for being hesitant of trying meds with side effects this serious. But after 5 years of my Crohns being left untreated I said "Fuck it!" and decided to give it a go. So far I haven't got the results I was hoping for but at least I put on 15-20lbs after starting Entyvio. Before starting it was impossible to gain weight no matter what I did so I'm thankful for that.
Going through what we go through sucks and no one should have to live life like we do. Crohns/Colitis fucking suck and I hope they find a cure soon. Keep fighting the good fight people and don't ever give up. One day we'll have a cure....one day!
