hey, good deal, Keith! I'm glad the cyclosporine worked. So what's next, are you still planning for surgery? I had a double dose of  Remicade this past Monday to ttry to stabilize me a bit, & started bleeding again Wednesday pm.... so frustrating! I'm just trying to bide my time comfortably 'til my surgery, November 14th. At this point I am SO looking forward to it!

diagnosed with UC '02
Asacol- 8 tabs/day
Remicade infusions
Imuran- 100mgs/day
Prednisone- 60mgs/day
nothing works anymore.....
surgery date- November 14th!!!!!!
