In my lifetime I have had three flare-ups of Ulcerative Colitis. The first in my late 20s, the second when I was 57, and the third when I turned 60.
The second time landed my in the hospital where they tried everything but then they tried Remicade. It worked. I got well enough to get home where I ate baby food for two weeks then I went to Hypocrates Institute in Florida for two weeks of raw food diet care. I stopped the Remicade.
I thought it would never come back–but it did. Now I managed to get my first infusion of Remicade which thus far has not helped. I am scheduled for two more treatments.
Has anyone had an experience with Remicade where it took more than one dose before it started to work after stopping?
