Ok Gang,
The diagnosis is an abdominal fistula. Oh happy day. Saw my gi on Wed of last week, had already called in a script of Flagyl before seeing me. Friday had my Remicade infusions, since Remicade and Flagyl are the meds for fistulas. Lets hope it works. Alot of people on here are misinformed about stopping Remicade and then resuming it. You can stop Remicade and yes you can resume Remicade but you must be given pre-meds because the odds are greater for a reaction w/o pre-meds.
It was like old home week going to the hospital for Remicade. My last Remicade was almost 2 yrs ago. Gave me my pre-meds and had no problems as usual. I had to laugh at my gi, he said you know I have 2 diagnosis going with you in your chart, colitis and crohns. I told him I believed in making him work for his money, and me getting my moneys worth. lolhe agreed with that theory. He agreed with mte on that one.
Happy Easter Everyone......Susie

Hi Susie,
I am glad you could restart Remicade. There is a 50/50 chance ppl can build anti-bodys to Remicade. I have been on remicade for almost 5 years and enjoying remission.

Hi, I am teddybearweiser, I am a male.
I was diagnosed with crohns disease when i was admitted to the hospital
in 1992, in Jan of 1993 I was back in the hospital for surgery for my crohns. I had part of my right colon resectioned with ilecolonstomy.
 My GI doctor has me on Asacol, Dicyclomine,Imuran,Celebrex and Remicade. B-12 injection once a month.
My Internest doctor has me on Lisnopril-HTCZ and Folic Acid. Diagnosed
