I am really suffering from long-term use of Prednisone, and I want to try Rewmicade. So does my Rheumy, for other reasons. But my GI says no, because I have Crohn's with a stricture, which caused a week long hospital stay recently (i ate a carrot!) and because of the stricture Remicade is contra-indicated. Julia, how are you doing now? I am desperate to get off the pred, real currently I have no GI doc. Advice or experience anyone?
I am NOT my disease, but I do have: Crohn's, Sjogren's, Sero-Neg RA, Fibromyalgia, Breast Cancer, Diverticulitis, GERD. My mother, sister, and brother also have Crohn's. Biggest problem is severe stricture in my small bowel, and adhesions from multiple surgeries.
