Sounds like they are thinking of having you try Remicade (Infliximab). It is one of the biologics. I don't have any experience with it, but many others on the forum have. Hopefully someone will be along soon.

(((BIG HUGS))) Sure hope you get feeling better soon.

:(... Sorry things aren't so good for you right now... I have not taken Remicade, either... but I'm sure someone else can help...
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.

Ann, Remicade works wonders for some, and does nothing for others...
I hope it works for you,I've been on it for three years, and it has steadily
reduced inflammation.I have personally witnessed the mini-blockages you
talk about. It's amazing how easy it is to find a place to puke...
Hope they figure it out for you...
diagnosed 1981
remission until 2006
Entocort, 6mp,Hydrochlorothiazide
Remission since surgery
and 8-week Remacade.
d since 1981(enjoy the look
on Dr's faces)

I have been in hospital many times with patial obstructions and pucking. I'm old fashioned in that I ask for an NG tube to relieve the pressure on the stomach and stop the puking. (NG tube is inserted through the nose and into the stomach and a small vacuum pump is attached to it to drain the stomach and keep it drained until the obstruction opens) Docs don't seem to want to do that anymore, it seems like they want to relie solely on drugs to relieve the pressure and pain. Ramicade did not work for me, but I know it has helped alot of other people. Good luck and hang in there, I will pray for you.
Over 30 years experience! Dx 1976, surgery every seven years, the only effective long term drug has been very low doses of prednisone. Refuse to take anymore immune suppressants.
