Remicaid infusion seems to have helped a little

Remicaid infusions seems to have improved the most severe pain that I have been having.  The pain seems a little duller and I guess that means that the inflammation was reduced. Remicaid should gradually help for a long time period of many years but it will not cure me because the professionals say that I will eventually become resistant to its beneficial effects.

The beneficial effects of my Humira injections have stopped completely so they have eliminated these shots to put me on Remicaid.   Humira did seem to have stopped the formation of abscesses but even that benefit would have gone away with time.  Hopefully Remicaid will be a temporary magic dam to hold back the tide of Crohn's until  something better comes along.

The are testing medical marijuana for Crohn's disease in Israel and it seemed to have helped a significant number of patients. I'll tell you what, I am perfectly willing to use medical marijuana if it will actually work better than the medications that I am taking. Some of my more conservative friends may find that offensive but  I guaranty that they do not have a flaming case of Crohn's disease.
