Had a blockage after being on Cimzia for 12 months.  Dr says it is worth a try to switch to remicade.  if not, probably need surgery. Predisone in hospital and no is keeping things moving but he says this is not a permenant fix.  I am worried about remicade and wonder why i shouldnt opt for the surgery.  thoughts?

I'm switching from Remicade to Cemzia, as my whole body had really bad side effects from Remicade. well i'm supposed to be switching to Cemzia, but found out yesterday, that I now have no insurance. The side effects from Remicade started right after my 2nd treatment of Remicade. But all 3 of them , Remicade, Humira and Cemzia all have the same side effects, if not one worse then the other.

But i'm new to all of this, as I was diagnosed with Crohns on August 9th of this year. Hope all goes well with you
