many thanks



Hi Sandra, sorry to hear that the crohns is already flaring after your op - same thing happened to me last year :( I have been on the infliximab previously and it did well for a fair while but I then had an allergic reaction so it was stopped. Perhaps have a nosy around the sub forum for this med especially the remi club thread as there are many here on this drug who can advise about how they are currently doing on it: http://www.crohnsforum.com/forumdisplay.php?f=58.

Hope you can be feeling better soon.
