I started remicade in July 2009 and after about
my fourth infusion is when I leveled out to about
4 bm's a day. I was going about
10-15 a day before with a lot of urgency and accidents. When I had to go I had to go right then.
I go about
two times in the morning. Morning is the worst for me. This is right when I get up then I go once after eating my breakfast, then I eat lunch and go once after that, I usually don't go anymore after that. Once in a while depending on what I eat I will go after supper but usually not. I always have D never formed stools. I never really had blood so can't help you there. I had mucus but that is gone. I also don't have as much urgency. If I have to go when I'm out I have time to find a bathroom. I can't wait forever but I haven't had any accidents since starting it. I had a scope done in March 2010 and the remicade didn't heal my colon at all. They wanted me to go off it i said give me a while longer because it was helping my symptoms and I felt like I had a life. I just had a scope in Jan. 2011 and my left side is completely healed and my right only had mild inflammation. I use to have severe uc throughout my whole colon. So, it took my colon about
a year and a half to heal. Good luck
