Treatment

Well its now 4 weeks since my last dose of biologic immunosuppressants due to hand surgery and so far no sign of the psoriasis coming back - the effect it would seem is long lasting.

That's great Victor, I always imagine it would come back quickly when treatment stops... it's great that it hasn't for you!

That is fantastic Victor! So happy it has not come back with a vengeance for you! How much longer do you have to wait until you can start taking them again?

Hand is recovering slowly folks should try another shot of the biologic in a week or so.

That's great Victor. I wonder... Do you have to wait till you have symptoms for the next dos of biologic or do you just automatically take it? Just curious. It would be great if it just stopped your psoriasis in it's tracks.

Susan - What I have noticed is that some of my joints are starting to feel a bit arthritic again - will hold off another week and take the next shot at 6 weeks which will put me back on schedule. Still no scaly skin yet!

Oh dear Victor. I sure hope the arthritis doesn't come back. Might be time for more of the diet stuff. You could do both biologics and diet. I'm really happy that your skin is better though. That's a HUGE plus and, honestly, was quite fast results. One day at a time Victor.
