Reply to "How did you decide it was time for surgery?"

I was just sick and tired of being sick and tired. Remicade had become available but it didn’t seem to do anything for me (I may not have given it enough of a chance). The steroids were having their way with me, and I didn’t want to wait until I lost a hip or developed cancer (cancer rates become astonishingly high after an extended period with UC). I had to contact several surgeons before I found one willing to take a chance on me.
