Hi, I have written on this subject before, but I am sending out one last request before making up my mind. I have very long term JCA ( 50years) and have had many replacement and revision ops on knees and and hips, in last 20 years. I had always maintained my RA with NSAIDs with the occasional cortisone jab, but in the last four years, I have tried embrel, leflunomide, toxillizumab and now abatacept. It has not been a very happy experience, and after trying to deal with abatacept for the last six months, I am now in a mess, not knowing what to do. Has anyone had a similar experience with biologics and long term grinding RA. I would be so happy to here of any stories, so I can go next week to my consultant with a clear idea of what to do.
