Hi there,I'm actually asking this question for a young lad at my place of work.I have UC,but Harry(the "young lad")has Crohns.I'm not overly sociable,so it's only recently I've befriended Harry and asked him about
his disease(obviously there's a mutual understanding here).So anyhow,it turns out he's currently on Methotrexate,and will be having his first Remicade infusion on the 21st of December(boy,what a Christmas present!).
I was going to point Harry in the direction of this board(ie;give the address),but as he's only young(early twenties,as I say,only just got to know him)I'm a little worried he'll freak out at some of the info here.Please don't take offence guys,but I'm sure you understand how alarming some of this stuff sounds?
I really don't like to see people suffer,so I'd be grateful for any info you can provide.I gather that Remicade can cause some nausea?That would be a real bummer for Christmas!
All input is welcome,this is a great forum and I will direct Harry to it at some stage.Point being,he only started the suffering this year,I've had UC since 1995,there's not much that phases me now!Besides which,he's the second person I now know with Crohns.I'm not happy with the UC,and at times it really makes life difficult,but I really do feel for you guys.
Also(sorry to keep asking!),if anyone in the UK can provide links for workers rights with CD,I'd be very grateful.My place of work isn't very understanding,and I feel Harry has been treated very badly(like crap,if you'll pardon the pun and profanity!).
So there you go,as I say,all input is valued.Cheers guys
