I am still suffering from a flare-up that started on Labor day of this year. I have been on prednisone (and entocort) since then. I have gained tons of weight and am very depressed. The prednisone was not working, but the doc I have said to just wait...
I also did three weeks of Flagyl. Disgusting, vile antibiotic.... That did not work, but again my doc said wait.
I went to a specialist in Boston yesterday. He was very nice and knew his information. He wants me off the prednisone as soon as possible. Yay!!
He also wants me to discuss Remicade with my GI. He thinks this is the next step. I agree.
Does anyone know the process of this treatment??
Also, any good recommendations for GIs in RI??
This Boston guy was great, but he is so far away....
any help would be great,
