I'll try and make this short. I was on Remicade for 2 yrs because of this dd. Started having stomach pains, went to doc and had blood work done, found out i am ammune to it. so he puts me on pred 50mgs, tappering 5mgs a week, 1000mgs cipro and flagyl. I feel like a million bucks. Kinda shaky because of the pred. Chrohns is doing EXCELLENT. Put me on Humira about 3 weeks ago. did my second injection of humira yesterday. Humira is so much easier the Remicade in the doc for 20 minutes and out. Used to take me anywhere from 3-5 hours for the Remicade.
No more getting up in the middle of the night for br visits. using the br maybe 2-4 times with some solid stools. almost feel like a normal person. (ALMOST).
Diagnosed with chrohns about 5 yrs ago. had U.C. 10 yrs prior.
Had large intestine removed in 02
See i made it short. I am shocked. tc. great site.
