Thanks everybody. So far I have seen definite improvements on the standard dose, but last night a bit of a setback (so far still formed stool, no blood, less pain but that yucky UCish feeling in gut as of last night) so I know it will not be continuously smooth sailing either. Good to know that if worse comes to worse I can always ratchet it up another notch if my GI approves. As far as side effects that I notice from Remi so far- nothing, not even on the day of the infusion.
