I will be having my 4th remi on the 12th, I had a flare after my 2nd and am now on pred and taping from 60mg to 20 mgs now. They told me it could take 3 or 4 treatments to start working. I am hoping it will work. I know I need to be off pred for a while before I will be able to tell if it's working. Hope you get the answers you need.
I must have started remi the same time as your husband because I am due for my third treatment on May 23. I have already started feeling better in that I have less stomach pain. I still have tons of arthritis, D, fatigue, and all the other blessed symptomes, but less pain. I am currently on 30 mg of Pred and wanting to be done with it. I am optimistic that remi is my answer and I think it will be for your husband too. He sounds sicker than me and that is hard for a family to deal with. I am lucky to have a great husband and you sound like a great wife. I guess I don't have much to offer but my prayers and thoughts for you two. I hope the remi is your families miracle as I hope it is mine.
