Hi don't know much about infiltrates although there are many different reasons for them. Keep in touch and let us know what you decide to do do . lol gail
Thanks. I have long thought that the risks and benefits of Remicade always need to be carefully weighed. Assuming the lungs are something manageable and not necessarily linked to Rem., I still may try to stay off Rem. The time "window" within which someone can resume an AntiTNF drug after being off it, may close in any case. No good answers.
Male, in early 60's; diagnosed age 39 with Crohn's although I had intermittent symptoms in
childhood. Had bowl resection 1989. Treated with Prednisone and Asulfadine or Asacol, then started Remicade infusions every 8 weeks in 1999. Clean colonoscopies for most part since then. Currently, lung infiltrates seen in CT scans (no breathing symptoms) are being evaluated to rule-out possibility they were precipitated by Remicade (off Remicade at present, Crohn's worse).
