Of course you can tell I'm a new member------I've read so much about
infusion. Exactly what is it? It sounds very invasive & you have to go to the hospital to get it. Is it an IV or is it put directly into your intestines? I have an appt. with my doctor tomorrow & will ask many questions thanks to the many things I've read on this forum. I'm just coming to the conclusion that I have to take charge of my health issues & not rely entirely on what my dr. does or does not tell me. At the present time, I have experienced terrible flares, last nite being the worst as it lasted 5 hrs. & every hr. all nite long. I feel that I have to actually break down crying or acting like I'm dying before the dr. takes my condition seriously & does something that will work for a change. I'm on Prednisone, Nexium for 3 wks. now & Asacol for over a year. I tell the nurse & doctor what I'm going thru & they prescribe meds but nothing seems to be improving. Am I not presenting my case properly? What should I do to get quicker results so I can live a normal life?
