I'm going to be starting testing in 2 weeks, in hopes I'm approved!  I'm nervous about it and noticed a few posts about others considering and/or doing it...
 
Just curious!

im on the trial for it. it seems to be helping, but it took a while for it to kick in. for the first few weeks i was afraid i'd gotten placebo, but gradually i started feeling better. im -almost- in remission now. the infusion itself is only about a half hour to 45 mins long, but with wait times (they have to keep you afterwards for another half hour for observation) it takes around 3 hours. i havent noticed any bad side effects.

im gettin scared though, i get re-randomized in a few weeks. i havent felt this good in years, and i do NOT want to lose that. hopefully i stay on the drug. if this keeps up i can resume a normal life soon... complete with a job!

Bane - THanks for posting! I'm worried too. Especially since I have to travel 3 hours to get it. I worry it'll not be worth it. I'm on 30mg of steroids and will rapid wean (10mg/week and then 5mg for the last week) once I receive the drug. I worry that I'll be traveling for nothing, but we'll see!

well i think its like a 1 in 4 chance to get placebo right away, and then in the re-randomization its like one in 6 or something. hopefully you get the drug :D
