Thanks for all the advise guys...I am so undecided!! As for the other meds I have been on, I have taken, Pentasa, Flagyl, Canasa, Asacol, and Pred. I have also tried different diets, but I don't have a lot of will power when it comes to food. I love to eat. I am going to see my GI again on tuesday and I am going to talk to him about the Remicade then. I am worried that I will try it and it will work for a while then quit, then I will have wasted more time. I have lost the last year of my life and there is no way to get that back. This sucks sooooo bad. But I have faith that something will work, and if it comes down to surgery I have a great family that will support me no matter what. Hearing from you all is great though, you KNOW exactly what I am going through. My family can only look in from the outside and say "oh I'm so sorry." I have my moments though when I look at healthy people, and while I would never...ever..wish this on anyone, I resent seeing people healthy and doing what they want without a care in the world. Isnt that terrible!!??!! Well anyway thanks again for the info...I am sure that I will be on here again soon. This is like free therapy, hehe!! This is the most positive place that I have found regarding ostomies. Most of the stuff I have found on the internet is really depressing. It is good to hear that there is hope.
