UC and Remicade

I was diagnosed this past October with UC and anything my doctor put me on didn't work...he finally put me on Remicade in June and I've had 3 infusions. The problem I'm having now is that I feel constipated all the time and I have some pain in my rectum. Not a stabbing pain but sort of a dull ache, especially when I feel like I have to have a BM. but when I get to the bathroom, its mostly gas. Anyone else have this problem since going on Remicade?

It sounds as if the remicade is working. Sometimes certain parts of the bowels heal before others and problems with constipation and gas usually occur. .. Remicade didn't work for me, but I would look into a probiotic and acidophilus for the gas.
