I was recently put on Cimzia and I am having mixed feelings about it.  I was on remicade for years and was having decent results, but had to also rely on prednisone to avoid flaring.  I am just 1 week out of the hospital from having surgery (small bowel resection and several strictoplasties (sp?) I was put on Cimzia before I knew that I was going to have to have surgery, so I am unsure if the Cimzia has really had a chance to start working.  I was just wondering if there was anyone out there that is having good results with Cimzia or what kind of symptoms you are having while on it?
