hey. I live in the Chapel HIll/Durham area. you live in the area?
also, if you don't mind me asking.... who is your insurance provider? sounds like they are really good?
and, another question, given that you were only diagnosed 6 months ago, how is it that you are already on remicade? did you try 6-MP/Imuran? I would be curious to hear your story, if you're willing to share it. thanks.
I may have somewhat of a similar story with regards to diagnosis, and remicade vs. 6mp. Basically my doc told me that because 6mp has been around for a while traditionally patients get treated with it first. If it fails, remicade is another option as well as the combination of two. Remicade is supposed to work faster, plus it takes less effort from the patient as far as taking the pills. Faster was the magic word for me since I was and still am trying to get off darn prednisone. So I picked remicade 10 weeks after being dx'd w. UC. I haven't started the treatment yet, but I will soon.
