I used the Rowesa last night and was able to keep it in all night. Things a little rocky today but a bit better than yesterday. My GI told me I could get my next infusion this weekend, at five weeks (I can't do weekdays so we didn't even discuss sooner). There was an
opening on Sunday morning, not tooo early, so I am booked for that. I'll bring my bagel and schmear and coffee, the Sunday paper and relax without anyone stealing sections out from under my nose.
Thanks for the support. I'm hoping to eventually make do with just Lialda and Remicade (and my supplements)and drop all my other meds, but we shall see.
