okiemom, I was wondering yesterday if you were going to have just the three infusions...I went back to my GI yesterday and finally got to tell him everything was normal...I know there are some people that disagree with only having three infusions and then stopping it...To be honest, I didn't really give how many infusions any thought, but whether or not I wanted it at all after reading all the terrible side effects...As far as it not working in the future, who knows? Maybe by the time I need it again, they will have something else out, or maybe I want ever need it again...I just know, I needed a jumpstart and that worked for me...I have a wonderful doctor and he is sincere about
helping me...I'm picky about
my doctors and if I felt he was doing me wrong, I would be the first to tell him...I just wanted to let you know, I'm finally down to 5mg of pred after about
8 months of that drug...I hate it!!! Yes, it helped me, but the side effects are awful for me...Oh, and after the first infusion of remicade, i could see a huge difference...After the second, I was pretty much back to normal, and have been ever since...Who knows how long it will last?? I may regret our descision about
the remicade later, but as of now, I'm doing great...Just a little encouragment if you go with the three infusions...I just know it worked for me, but maybe not everyone...
