Hi,

I had a sigmoidoscopy today. This was to see if the Entyvio I have been taking since last October has healed the colon mucosa. Last scope was a full colonoscopy in September showing moderate active disease.

I started on Entyvio every 8 weeks but was relapsing so they moved it to every 4 weeks.

Today, the GI said I was in endoscopic remission! Only scar tissue left. This is great news.

I had some issues last month but they have cleared and he said it was probably an infection.

I hope everyone taking a biologic for the first time can have this success. Here's hoping it lasts.
