Sounds like improvement to me. I was going up to 20 or more times a day at my first treatment. Personally I saw 50% improvement after my first infusion and a liitle more improvement after the next 4. I'm awaiting number 5 next week and while I'm not fully healed, I'm definitely closer to it.
Be patient because you will probably see some setbacks in between infusions. I was expecting it to be like when I took steroids which for me always meant immediate relief. Biologics seem to take longer. Probably because they heal instead of just reducing inflammation. I saw blood again at times and had increased frequency as my next infusions approached but my dr played with timing and will consider alternative dosages.
Thank you for the quick response. Did you see any improvement after your second infusion as well? I think my case is pretty mild compared to some. My only symptom is slight mucus with a little blood. But when I say little I mean maybe a little strand.
