G-tube vs. Humira

So basically, I'm looking for some input on pros/cons. I can choose between getting a G-tube and Humira. Right now, I'm using an NG-tube, with a clear liquid diet and it's rather daunting sometimes. I miss eating.

does anybody else around here has a G-tube? I might get one after I graduate, but I'm not sure if I want to. I could also try Humira, but the side effects make me nervous. I'm particularly interested in how long you had to wait before eating some normal food again. : )

i would say go for Humira! talk to your doc, but it's going well for me. no side affects aside from some breakouts. the injection is not a big deal at all. Humira has really helped me so far; I can eat foods i used to not be able to, and I feel better overall.
