Wow, I must be the only person here whose GI doctor NEVER suggested surgery.
Anyway, I was on 6MP for seven years. It never kept me in a long term remission. My doctor took me off the 6MP before starting Remicade (which failed after 3rd infusion). I then gave Humira a shot for three months...no change .
Why is your doctor taking you off Remicade? Have you built up antibodies to it?
I agree with most of the posts in here....seek another opinion.
I felt I exhausted all my options and I did become prednisone dependent for the two years prior to my surgery. Odd that my GI never mentioned LDN. I would have tried that had I known people have success on it. Oh well.
By the way...I suffered with ulcerative proctitis for twelve years..diagnosed at age 52, surgery at 64.
