okay so what you are saying is that they suppress the immune system-
so would my doctor not want to try that because I have already gotten a staffinfections ( they think) in my leg twice - they could not get it to grow in a culture.
They infection disease doctor that I have ( is also on the board at the hospital I go to - the only reason I got him is because he is friends with my primary doc) - said that there is a rare thing that goes with UC that causes infections in the leg.
I am just afraid that if I jump from Lialada to Remicade - I wont have anything left
AND NO doc did not call me back.
Diagonsed with UC in about 99 -
