Cimzia Worked!

I started Cimzia last Thursday. It's still early but it worked! Before Cimzia I had HORRIBLE pain and irregular bowel movements. Everything is normal now!!! No pain, regular bowel movements... I really feel like Cimzia is giving me my life back. I was so close to just giving up.

I am getting ready to do the second round of shots today, I personally can not say it has worked as well for me that fast...I am hoping it will start kicking in after this round I do tomorrow, my pain is not as bad, but I still do get some diarrhea. I have a few more weeks of prednisone, which has helped but wanting to get off that also.

I hope it continues to work that well for you, and pray that it kicks in that good for me SOON!!!
