My son Pablo was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis 3 years ago.
At the beginning I was worried
but I didn’t realize
it was something for life.
I live in El Salvador and here in my country this is a very weird and uncommon disease. Our gastroenterologist is trying hard to help but crisis are more often and more severe. Looking on the internet I found a clinic in Miami,Florida and we decide to flew to see a doctor specialist in UC. He prescribed lialda, and 6mp. I have no idea how i am going to get the medicine because here nobody knows it. I really need to know if it is possible to buy it online and if you need special prescription.
My life has completely changed because even if i am trying to make my son feel that everything is fine, i am all the time worried and thinking what ‘s next.
My son is supposed to start taking 6mp ( if we find it and if i can afford it) but after reading all the opinions and side effects I don’ t know anymore what’s right. Why is everybody asking for a way to stop taking it, and are there problems about having children ?
Please if somebody knows if there is a foundation or something to apply for financial aid to help my son I will really Appreciate your help.
Right now my son is in college in Monterrey Mexico, and he is on pentasa 4 grams , and salofalk enemas. He is doing fine most of the time, but having a strict diet and exercising his symptoms are every time worse.
What is the truth about Remicade? Are the costs as high as they seem?
