Nance was started on 500 milligrams of Remicade as a 16-year old. Today, he takes 1,100 milligrams every six- to seven weeks during the season, eight in the offseason. He’s on a second drug to protect his immune system. Whether it was by Melmed in Los Angeles or the gastroenterology team at Cleveland Clinic, Nance’s blood is monitored to ensure he’s on the appropriate dosage of medicine and that it’s functioning properly. Doctors don’t wait for failure to treat him. The rest is up to Nance. There is no set list of foods that are off-limits to each Crohn’s patient, but the wrong meal can derail him for weeks. For Nance, he avoids nuts, seeds and popcorn; spicy foods and fast food; and fatty foods. He learned popcorn was a no-no his freshman year at Wyoming.
Nance also says stress can be a significant factor, which is intriguing given that when he was dealt to the Cavs last season, he was dropped into the boiling, daily stress cauldron of playing on a team with LeBron James that was expected to go to the Finals. It was Nance’s first trip to the playoffs, and, not only did the Cavs reach the Finals and have to face the Warriors (who put stress on everybody), but Cleveland also needed to win two Game 7s just to get there. “No, because all of that’s basketball,” he said when asked whether last season stressed him out. “This is my job. I love it, this is my life. But I also go home away from here 20 hours a day and life is pretty damn good. If something were to happen with my family or with my off-the-court situation, maybe, but there’s not a whole lot that can happen, basketball related, that can get me that riled up that I’d let take away my health.”
