Yes, when I was on remicade it did increase my energy level for about
the first week after infusion. My body was eating the remicade so I was quickly losing it effects, but had my body not done that I think that Remi might have worked for me.
And yes, after surgery my energy is definately increased, no longer exhausted - I am rested, calm and content. I'm not the man I was before UC energy wise but I don't hurt, feel fatigue (from lack of sleep), or have the emotinal worry and stress of UC. All those things combined have increased my physical and emotinal energy. I laugh more now and I'm funny again too, I go out and enjoy it, I enjoy my family/friends because I'm no longer so focused on me and my UC. That is the big thing now my life is no longer so self-centered on me and UC, its now about me living life with others again.
