I finally had a good day... no pain.. and I just had my first normal bowel movement.. it wasn't diarrhea. I screamed in excitement... I made hubby look.. LOL.. I haven't had anything close to this since Christmas.

I don't know what did it...but I don't care.

And the joint pain is gone thanks to the prednisone. The hallucinations seem to have ceased. Still having terrible headaches and sometimes really weird side affects.. but if the Imuran is doing this that wooofreakinghooo. Maybe its the colestipol finally working... And if its just today, well you know what.. I am still happy...One good day gives me hope that there may be another good day.

Yay. I needed this.

Awesome!
I felt the same way after 2 infusions of remicade!
WOOHOO to us!
Diagnosed with typical Crohn's at 16.
Got lucky with Asacol for a year, then even luckier with ten years of relative remission.
Now abscesses and fistulas are having an "atypical" Crohn's party around my junk.
The surgeon said it is inoperable and so I start Remicade on May 7th.
