Since you have had Crohn's for over 30 years now, I am sure you are
in touch with the recent developments about treatment options.
Unfortunately , you have had surgeries for recurrent disease and bowel
obstructions. 6-MP and Methotrexate
are effective in mild to moderte
stages of Crohn's. If someone has had complicated course , this regimen may
not be as effective in acheiving remission.
There are Biologicals such as Infliximab
and newer ones which are very good
in bringing about remission.
As to your question about liver damage
from Methotrexate, you should have
been monitored with periodic liver blood tests. If they were normal, then you
I want you to discuss with your gastroenterologist about the newer options.
I wish you the very best.
