Brian, I hope Remicade works that quickly for you. But I've had two infusions and haven't had any significant improvements--I'm hoping 3rd time is the charm! My GI said that I'll be using Remi "indefinitely." However, that could be because I had a serious reaction/side effects to 6MP, so I don't have the option of stepping down to it.
Lialda made your symptoms worse? Hmm, I switched to Lialda the day I started Remicade. I wonder if that could be "blocking" any Remi improvements...
Anyway, good luck tomorrow!
