Hello & welcome to Healing Well. So sorry to read about your brother. I don't recall reading about anyone on Remicade having a stroke. I have heard some members say their gi's say crohns patients can clot faster & can have blood clots, however, none of my gi's has ever told me that.
Has the drs said what caused all of this? Does he have a history of cardiac problems? Are you saying all of these strokes has happened since being on Remicade? Afib can be treated many ways. My husband has Afib & ended up with a pacemaker. Both of us have a history of blood clots, he is on Warfarin & I have one of those filters.
I can understand the drs wanting to get all of the heart issues stable. Being on a blood thinner puts him at some risk, which I am sure the drs has explained this to him & his wife. Please keep us posted on how he is doing.
