I hope this can make you feel at ease with Remicade. Before Remi I was having around 8-10 BM a day with blood in them. I had no energy and just wanted to lay in bed when I was home.
I have had 2 infusions now with the third coming next week. I am having 1-3 BM a day with no blood anywhere. I have no pain and no other reactions from CD (Acne, oily skin, etc) I have so much energy now that my wife and I just got a 4 month old poodle that keeps us very active.
I don't know how long this will last but I an happy to be symptom free. It has been years. My body is finally getting a rest from CD. I don't worry about the future and if I will be on it all my life. I just look at the here and now.
Good luck and I hope you have great results with the Remicade. I feel it is a miracle drug and wish I knew about it earlier.
