Hello everyone. I just wanted to update since I haven't in awhile. I had my second Remicade infusion on Wednesday and so far so good. My diarrhea is somewhat better and the side pain is a little better. I went from having skinny pencil looking bm's to well, I guess more substantial diarrhea if that makes sense haha. Anyway, I'm still working with my doctor to put off surgery as long as possible, so hears hoping I keep seeing positive results from the Remicade, I'm also still taking Entocort. Happy Holidays to you all and much love!
