    Thanks for sharing your experience, which I think can be scary the first time, for any biologic. I am on Entyvio and Stelara & I get both every four weeks. I have found I’m so cold afterwards too! I go in hot (I usually am a crockpot) and then like Mr. Freeze I come out in a sweater and coat.

      Thank you for reading and sharing! I am curious to know more about you getting both Entyvio and Stelara? I usually freezer so the infusions make me colder! The VA has heated seats, so thankfully that helps.

  2. Entyvio infusions are a way of life for me now every 6 weeks in Boston at BWH after undergoing abdominal surgery for a serious fistula infection my Doc suggested Entyvio as soon as it was FDA approved. I am quite content sitting in a recliner which has a back messager which quells my anxiety. I have not experienced any side effects since I started 4 years ago and my Crohn’s is in remission. If you are cold take a heating blanket next time. My best wishes!
