Tysabri is a treatment for MS (Multiple Sclerosis) & was recently approved by the FDA for Crohn's Disease only if everything else fails.
I am 33yo married with 3 children BI”H, I was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease at 12 ½ I had 2 surgeries at the second surgery my entire colon and rectum was removed and I have a permanent Iliostomy, The Crohn’s came back 2 years after the second surgery, I had tried all medications you name it…, the only option before surgery again was Tysabri, I have had already 8 infusions of Tysabri I’m also very strict on the SCD diet (I was multiple times previous on the diet then it didn’t help) & B”H I’m feeling fine, I had a colonoscopy 2 months ago & there was no sign of the Crohn’s .
I’m willing to help anybody that needs information on Tysabri or Chizuk with an Iliostomy please email me at moisheys@gmail.com
