I too am new to the Crohn's family. I am 29 in Orlando, FL. I am on my 3rd round of Prednisone and I just started Imuran. I cannot seem to get the swelling to go down in my intestines. My GI is really pushing Remicade, but to be honest I am a little scared. I have read the literature and I am a pharmacy tech so I have great resources to rely on, but this stuff sounds scary. I know they have to tell you all the side affects but sometimes they just sounds bad. I have heard that people have great results with the Remicade.
I start a new job tomorrow that will be less stressful than the job I am leaving so I'm thinking I might just wait it out for a few months and see if the lower stress level helps in the healing process.
It's nice to have this forum just to get everything out. Thank you!
