In as brief as I can I was diagnosed with UC in May this year with a severe flare, no drug treatment has worked so far - 3 different types of enemas, Pentasa, 2 courses of Prednisolone and now Mercaptopurine (6MP).
My IBD Nurse rang me yesterday to tell me that my weekly blood test whilst on the Mercaptopurine has shown 'liver irritation' so if this has not gone down by my next blood test next week they will stop this treatment. Has anyone else ever experienced a raised LFT result? I'm trying to be optimistic it's just a blip and the LFT result will improve next week. I'll be so upset if we have to stop because I was trying to be so optimistic this 6MP will help (it's not yet but I've only been on it 6 weeks and I've been told it can take 12 weeks to work) and it'll be 6 weeks of putting up with nausea for nothing!
The other thing is - what will be the next course of treatment for me if this has to be stopped? Are we running out of options?
Thanks for any advice,
