Swan, after my resection I had some absorption issues & ended up B12 injections. This is not uncommon at all. I was on Remicade for 31/2 years & did really well. It also healed a small fistula & several others here had the same success. I had my infusions every 4 weeks Like you, my dr had to increase the dose. It really needs to be tailored to the person's needs. Usually the day of the infusion I was a little tired. It can be a little scary when starting the bio's, but try not to stress or worry. I was at my healthiest while on. I know it says it can possibly lower the immune system, but it did not lower mine. I actually did not have as many infections, it was doing it's job for sure.
