I'll try and make this short.   I was on Remicade for 2 yrs because of this dd.  Started having stomach pains, went to doc and had blood work done, found out i am ammune to it.  so he puts me on pred 50mgs, tappering 5mgs a week, 1000mgs cipro and flagyl.  I feel like a million bucks.  Kinda shaky because of the pred.  Chrohns is doing EXCELLENT.  Put me on Humira about 3 weeks ago.  did my second injection of humira yesterday.  Humira is so much easier the Remicade in the doc for 20 minutes and out.  Used to take me anywhere from 3-5 hours for the Remicade. 
   No more getting up in the middle of the night for br visits.  using the br maybe 2-4 times with some solid stools.  almost feel like a normal person.  (ALMOST).  
   Diagnosed with chrohns about 5 yrs ago.  had U.C. 10 yrs prior.
   Had large intestine removed in 02
   See i made it short.  I am shocked.  tc.  great site. yeah
