Have to disagree with Eva Lou. I'm not on remicade, but had acid reflux, followed by the extreme nausea which then led to vomiting (which with simultaneous bloody diarrhoea is totally noxious). It's not a terribly uncommon symptom, especially, it seems, when there's a lot of bleeding involved.
The advice about
soup and crackers (or dry toast) is great, though. As long as I ate very, very, slowly, I was able to keep the food down for some time. If you're tolerating liquids, then it's worth looking at some of the dietry supplements available. My doctor put me on omeprazole to help with the reflux and nausea - basically it is to reduce gastric acid, which can reduce nausea and help protect the colon as otherwise excess acid can further inflame the colon, may be worth speaking to your current GI about
this. Unless you've a lactose intollerance, it might be worth trying some porridge oats with hot milk and honey as a sweetener. I've found apple juice (but not from concentrate nor with added sugars) to be quite "gentle" overall, too.
Wishing you well.
