So I met with my GI today, he said that based on my colonoscopy that I had on Jan. 26th things look a lot better then they did when i was first dx a few months back. He mentioned that my colon is however like a volcano and could explode (start flaring) at anytime and even though i feel ok on the outside (only 1-2 BMS a day) that I'm not ok on the inside.
Soooo he recmonded that i start a stronger med and he threw out Remicade, Imuran and 6MP. His recomendation was to go with Remicade.
Those of you who are taking Remicade, what are your thoughts about the medication? Have you felt that it works? What about the side affects, I've heard that it could potentially cause cancer.
Any answers would be extremely helpful.
