Remicade : Day 372

One year and 7 days.....8928 hours.....535,680 minutes.....32,140,800 seconds.....now matter how you want to look at it, it's the Anniversary of my infusion treatment.
Looking back over the year, I can honestly say, for the most part, the Remicade has worked for me.  The pain from Crohn's has 98% gone, as I still seem to get gas pain at around the 4-5 week mark after infusion and I still get the abscesses (which I can really do without thank you very much).  I am dealing with that right now.  The positive is that at least they keep draining, but DAMN they hurt sometimes.  Not much you can do if it hurts to stand, walk or sit.  And I am not one to "lay around", so, yes, it DOES get to me that I can't really do anything that I want, or need, to do.
All in all, Remicade is working.......for me.

That's so good, I'm on remicade too, and it has been working wonders, hit just under a week before my next infusion, feeling pretty rough, so it can't come sooner!

Glad to hear it's working for you as well! It's amazing that you can feel when it's time for infusion eh...I'm the same.
