Sounds like my exact story. Was diagnosed 8 months ago and in a flare ever since. Pred stoped working, asacol and a couple other mesalamine pills (can't remember their names) didn't work. Went on Imuran for about
4 months with no results at all.
I just had my 2nd remicade infusion and things are starting to turn around. Blood has really diminished, frequency and urgency are getting better as well. It's not remission, but its the first thing that is giving me positive results.
I've read some of the other postings and was nervous about the first infusion as well. Let me tell you its no big deal at all. They put an IV in your hand and the nurse will mix the remicade with saline. Then you sit there for 2 hours and your done. It's really quite boring. Your hand gets a little cold from the saline going in, but other than that you don't feel a thing.
Hope everything works out for you. As you know this disease really sucks.
