Remicade

I am getting close to starting on Remicade.  Right now I am in the setting up / scheduling part of the process.  It could happen within a week or two.

Any advice or comments before I start?   Is it worth whatever risks lie ahead?  I was told I will be doing the infusions at 0-2-4-8 week intervals.  Once I hit the 8-week interval, it would continue at that indefinitely.  I am still a little skeptical, I suppose because I function well a lot of time but I am living without a large intestine and I have been told by 2 GIs that my small intestine is inflamed.  

In  other words, I have learned to live with my situation well over the past 19 years.  For the most part, not much has changed.  Just a lot of aggravation, frustration, and dealing with it the way I always have.

Any input is appreciated.

THANKS
