Hi, I am a new member though I have been reading this forum for awhile. Just wanted to say that I am very happy that I switched to Remicade. It has been a big help with pain and diarrhea especially. I get very tired for a day or more after each infusion but that is the only side effect so far, though I worry about
it. But, yes, always be sure that you get all of the information from your doctor (I think that there was some confusion in an earlier post between transfusions and infusions)
I have a question about anybody going out of the country for treatments. Mine are very expensive (I have 70/30 insurance). The cost is $12,000 per infusion so it was costing me $3,600. So I am presently using a clinic in Mexico. So far (6 months) I am happy and saving money. Does anybody else have "out of the country" experiences to share? I know that not all insurance policies will cover this.
