Like HaleyA I started September of last year and have never changed from 5mg per Kg every 6 weeks, after loading doses. So much better! Look at my join date, 2010 so it has been a long struggle.
After Remicade Calprotectin has gone from very low (11) to high normal (44). Any normal result is a first. That could be the usual lab variation, not a trend I hope.
The specialist recommends a repeat scope with biopsies 6 to 9 months after starting the infusions. The report shows "mild chronic most consistent with quiescent colitis". A report from an unaffected area reads "no evidence of active, chronic or microscopic colitis".
Can I sing the Hallelujah Chorus or do I have a way to go to reach remission? I can live with the symptoms, just a rare annoying morning.
