I've had 2 infusions of Remi so far and have not improved much. I don't have as much of an urgency problem--I can walk to the bathroom instead of run. I've had about one good day per week (little blood, about 4 BMs) since starting Remi, but the rest of the days are "normal" flare days. I'm not sure what my dose is.
Some people start feeling better after the first infusion--maybe that's why your GI is saying w/in 3 days? Have you noticed even any small changes?
