Hi Christina, Thank you so much. I am still really new to this whole thing and it is just driving me NUTZZ.
I really never thought about the family history and REMICADE. My family history is a whole bunch of trouble from heart to kidney to cancers. Ohya, the lungs too. I will look into my family history before I do anything. I will talk more with my doc after the TB this coming monday and see what he says. The only reason they mentioned REMICADE is because I am alergic to the 5 ASA's and I can't live on Prednisone forever. Like I said I am just nutzzz over this whole thing.
Please keep in touch and let me know how your surgery goes. I wish you all the best in the world with that.
