I am scheduled for a CT scan on Thursday and I was wondering if I should call my Dr. and have them reschedule it until after I get the 3rd Remicade infusion on Janurary 5. Does anyone have any input on this? I was kind of thinking that I should wait to see if the Remicade helps some more. I'm still having good days and bad days with the side pain. Thanks in advance :)

Entocort EC 9mg per day and Remicade

Tried Remicade 2 yrs ago for about a year and a half and loved it, got off it due to costs, tried Humira and it just didn't work for me so now back on Remicade.

I think you should go ahead with the tests. Your doctor ordered it for a reason, so I think its best to follow his instruction. Good luck!
