The past 2 times I have had my Remicade treatment, I had a bad reaction to it including: flushed face and neck and trouble breathing. They ahd to stop my treatment immediately and give me Benadryl in my IV. I was taking it that way the other treatmetns and then my new doctor decided I didn't need any pre treatment. Oops!!!We now know I ahve to have my Benadryl in an IV and not orally. It was scary but it worked!!! Next treatment Friday. SO glad because I have not been feelign well the pat 2 weeks.
I have been on Remicade since 4/11 and i has worked WONDERS for me. I LOVE it!!It does tend to wear off in about 5 weeks though but i have 5 BEAUTIFUl weeks of feeling well in between. I have had ZERO side effects except I tend to get colds and such frequently. I will take it though.View Thread
Sorry I haven't posted in awhile but with working part time and 3 kiddies 4 and under, time seems to go really fast. LOL I have a new GI now and I am doing great. I took part in a Remicade study last week (one time blood draw before my remicade and got paid $50) so hopefully something good will come of thta for people later on. I am not bleeding anymore and have no pain. I still go to the bathroom about 6-7 times per day but I can live with that. I still have weekly bowel accidents but I am on a Cortoid Foam now so hopefully that will stop soon too. Generally i feel good so I can't complain. The best news:: I get off Prednisone completely in another week and a half!!!!Party time for that!!!!!!LOL Hope everyone else is doing well.View Thread
I am doing okay now but still havign frequent bowel accidents. That is so emotionally draining for me. I HATE Depends and am so sick of wearign them. DO the Canasa suppositories help with the urgency?? I have virtually NO time before I have to go to the bathroom and then its coming!!!It has happened at work several tiems and is sooooo embarrassing!!!!!
I have been on Remicade since April with ZERO side effects. I do get sick alot though but I feel AWESOEM after my Remicade treatments. I highly reccommend them. I am also on Prednisone 30mg since Dec/10. I HATE it!!!I need to be off it ASAP!!!!View Thread
