Well I was just curious how long everyone has been on Remicade, and how well it has worked for them.
I have been on it for over 3 years and it has worked pretty good. Yes I did have to have surgery this year, but I was also on prednisone and 6-mp so not much was doing a lot anyways. I feel really comfortable with it, but I am just a wee bit afraid of the cancer risks since I am also on immunosupressants with it. Anyone else in the same situation.
