Anyone experienced this treatment? My RA consultant mentioned it last week when I attended for an emergency x-ray for my hip.
I experienced a flare up at the same time as my hip issue which it turns out to be a condition called Avascular Necrosis caused by blockage of blood supply - caused by steroids. Tissue, cartilage and bone all dead....🙁 MRI now in offing.
So discussion took place on wether my current Bioligical Tocilizumab is perhaps loosing it's effectiveness....
One suggestion was Tofacitinib. Having read the side effects I note among the extensive list that cancer could be one.
Has anyone any experience of this drug?
