Update - that you have all be waiting for!!!
- Hello Everyone,As promised yesterday in certain of my posts on the lists, here is finally an update from me and it's not good (sad to say)!!!I had my 4th remicade infusion on Monday and managed to get my prednisone down to 13mg, but the week before my infusion I wasn't feeling good. So my doctor told me to increase it to 15mg. On Tuesday, I was hit with agonising pain with vomiting and bowel movements together (now - doesn't that sound like fun). So I spoke to my GI on Wednesday and he told me to come and see him on Thursday.I AM NOW BACK UP TO 30MG PREDNISONE!!!And I was told that I have a build up of scar tissue and intestinal stenosis.If I am not wrong, this is from the remicade. Can someone on the remicade list tell me if I am right?I now have to be in touch with my GI every 5 days (Galit - isn't that fun!!! - since he is never there when I call).I am feeling no better and everything is still the same. Terrible pain, vomiting, nausea, plenty of bowel movements. I am so ready for surgery, but I think my GI is against surgery.
Galit - when did you have surgery? Did it help you?Love,Sarah
