I started remicade on october 1st. Everything went smooth. Didn't feel any side effects or anything. I wasn't in a bad flare, pretty mild but my gi wanted me to start since 125mg 6mp & asacol weren't helping me much anymore. Right away my stools were formed solid going once a day (ahh it's nice to feel regular again). Did my 2nd infusion a couple days ago and since then my stools are softer/broken & going 2-3 times a day. I'm going to go back to my strict diet & start using enemas more. I feel like this is the last straw though. Id rather have surgery than deal with flares & take all these meds. If i'm not going to see a solid remission, what's the point?
