I feel like like Remicade is the last option before surgery and I dont want to be at that stage yet, I've only had UC symptoms for about a year now. I also feel like its to new to the market, I think it's only been around since 98' so there isnt much data about long term side affects that make me feel comfortable about injecting it in to me for 2 hours at a time.
Also, it seems like its only a bridge to surgery, I mean how long could you actually stay on such a potent treatment like that??
