My dad almost died of lymphoma but here I am two years into Remicade with no side effects. I really think most of the side effects are associated risks, meaning the group tested had a slight increase in cancer. You could just as easily associate the risk of people who wear brown shirts on Fridays, etc. What I mean is the risk has not actually been tied to Remicade.
There are side effects that are more common which yur GI wil make you aware of. Most of them are fixed with Benedril.
It took me an entire year to get past the fear of Remicade and to submit to it. Don't waste your life in fear if you can be well!
Bad fissure Feb 2005, still have it January 2006. On Pentasa and Imuran 100mg. Some slight swelling and ulceration of terminal ileum. No other symptoms. Now on Remicade!
