I made the decision for Remicade, and it's worked out well for me. I've been to the infusion center for Remicade about 11 times now, and I see about 6 other people getting it each time. I've only seen 2 people have reactions, and both of those were treated with IV fluids to dilute the Remi and did fine. I know there are several people here who had reactions, but I haven't seen many at all - 2 out of about 65?
I also know I still have the option of surgery, too. It's a hard one for me to take because it takes away all my other options. But if you're really afraid of medicine, it might be the choice for you.
Either way, I'd recommend getting off the Pred as soon as possible.
