Hello everyone. I was just reading a lot of old posts and they are very informative and helpful.
I had a very bad Kaiser experience recently-41 days of hospital fun and 5 blood transfusions. I've been on prednisone way too long and it makes me crazy when I have to be on higher doses so my doctor is trying to get me off.
I just started Remicade. I've had two inpatient doses already and it seems to be working for the most part. I go in for my third dose in two weeks. I was wondering what others have experienced with remicade.
Also I have a book called eat right for your blood type. (I'm type O+) It was recomended to me from a girl with chron's and colitis and she said she followed the book and hasn't had a problem in 5 years. Has anyone else heard of this book?
