janey, i think it just depends on the person and his/her typical flare time. every person that i got remicade with was a crohn's patient. i actually didn't meet any UC patients. anyways, most of them said they had extended stays in the hospitals due to getting small intestine segments removed or from needing blood transfusions. my one friend with crohn's has missed a year of college due to not getting his flare under control. he is still on humira with remicade, but it's not doing wonders for him.
no meds. doing fecal transplant soon.
