Went to my son's rheumatologist on Tuesday and found out that another biologic that he was on, has failed him . This is the 3rd biologic that has done this. His spine is fused right up to his mid spine already.
We have one more different biologic that just came on the market to try, then after that he has to have surgery to fuse the rest of his spine and put rods in, so if he falls or gets in an accident, his fused spine won't break in half.
I am so sad about all this, I have been depressed, nevermind how my 19 year old is taking this all in. He was crying at his doctor's office asking her to just send him for the surgery now, because he can't take the pain anymore .
This new drug costs $229,830 for one year!!! So glad we have a good insurance company that works with us.
