I am a 65 year old female in pretty good health otherwise but have Crohns. In July of 2011 I had a total colectomy and had no problems for 11 months following surgery. In June of this year I had a major flare up with Crohns in my rectum. Dispite being on prednisone for more than a month with only some relief my doctor has now decided I should start Remicade. Has anyone in a similar situation taken Remicade and what have been the short term or long term results? Any conversation would be welcome.
