My name is Sneha Dave. I am 22 years old, a lover of the outdoors, and an ulcerative colitis patient. I now live with a J-pouch, which is when the small intestine is built into the shape of a J. I live with chronic pouchitis, which is inflammation of the J-pouch, and a respiratory issue that can be attributed to the drug I take to control my ulcerative colitis, Entyvio. The problem is that Entyvio has a list price of nearly $7,000 per month. But due to lingering inflammation, I’m hoping to find a different treatment option soon –– most likely Stelara, which now has an average list price of over $11,000 per month. Unfortunately, high-priced drugs like this are the best option for a lot of patients with ulcerative colitis.
