I found out that I have crohn's back in 2004. (My mom died from it, my one sister has it all so). The doc put me on steroids at first, they did not work. I gained alot of extra pounds, (I was on steroids for like 9 months, I was having a hard time getting weaned off of them).
Next step was to try the Remicade, whitch I am still on every 6 weeks. I had 14 treatment's so far. Not sure how much more of them I will be getting, they where working in the beging. Now it is takeing like 5 day's for it to kick in, and the inc co. is having a fit about the cost. I know that the treatments are not cheap, but I have to have them.
Now look at me? I still can't eat, go to potty like 10 time's a day. (Unless I don't eat). Then I can get away with only on the crapper maybe like 4 to 6 times. My vains are a suck, well I guess with being stuck alot does not help. I have to drive like 60 miles down for the treatments, and with MR. snow coming it will be a fun ride down the hill side.
I just don't know what else I can do, my 13 year old weights more then me. If I could only get fatter? (And not from steroids). Not going on them again, all ready told the doc... "NO WILL DO".
I was just woundering if any one else out there had to deal with the Remicade deal? and what else I could try to take....
