thank you for sharing your experience. The Remicade reallly isn't working, at least its barely working and I don't see it being her long-term med. However, they upped her dosage and it seems like she's getting better, just know from the past year that she gets anemic and doesn't feel good after a month, and we were starting to take surgery more seriously. Then this gi test comes back. I believe her colon is still a little ulcerated today, she got her Remi on Monday. I don't want to aggravate an already upset colon by "trying" this med, but then if there are parasitic remnants (I'm not really clear on this test, don't know if it's super accurate, etc.) that could be the etiology of her colitis, I would hate to have not tried it.
But when she's in pain I can't bear it.
