|Have been on it for three years now and so far has been a life saver. I have Crohn's and this stuff has given me full remission. I know there are people that have side effects, but I haven't experienced anything but being tired the day of the treatment.|
That is so good to know! I, too, have been on it for approx 3 years and so far so good. I do know of a girlfriend who was on it for a year then had a terrible reaction but otherwise, most seem to do well........it's just still a little scary.....but what the heck, it has helped me too...immensely...and saved me from more surgery!
hope you're doing well
I hope everyone that is finding success with Remicade continues to do so. Unfortunately for me, I ended up with a major reaction the second time I received it. I got a "lupus-syndrome" from it. Every joint in my body swelled, I could not move my hands or walk. My liver enzymes were extremely high. I had a high fever and was hospitalized.
In 2006 I had an ileo-rectum surgeon, (I left my ostomy) and since there I keep on with immunosuppression, however I feel good now and I hope soon to stop with pills.
