Reply to "Remicade"

Has anyone experienced or heard of sudden deadly consequences from using Remicade?  By that I mean serious health issues or even instant death.  I understand the problems that can result from a weakened immune system over time.  Is there any way to address that other than regular blood work and doctor's visits?

I am getting close to my start date -- which could likely be some time this week.  

Back in 1994-95 I spent a year on Imuran before my total colectomy.  It seemed it was a pretty good year for me compared to previous.  Before going on the drug in 1993-1994, I ended up in the hospital twice for a couple of weeks each time.  

I think Remicade is the right thing to do at this point.  It seems that if I have some success with it (and I am not holding my breath expecting much), too bad it wasn't around back in the 90s before I had my surgery in 2000.

Thanks.
