Hi all! Lots going on here lately with hubby: pulmonary function test (normal); chest x-ray (normal); stress test (some hypertension--believed to be the pred.); TB reading today (looks to be normal); pill-cam scheduled for Monday, oh boy!
First infusion of Remicade scheduled for next Thursday. So, what tips do you all have for prepping for the first time? I think I recall the doc saying they do pre-medicate, but I am not sure. Should he bring some Tylenol and/or allergy stuff just in case? Can/should he bring a water bottle (he's a bing water drinker)?
What are some other things we should think about beforehand? Immediately afterwards? What have been some of your experiences directly afterwards--specifically after your first infusion?
Thanks for anything you can think of....
P.S.: just want to say that just about EVERYTHING I've learned about Crohn's I've learned from this site, this place is amazing! I come here and read daily, even though I don't post very much.
