thanks for the response yes i have had a rough 20 years some years good some bad. i have had only one surgeryin 20 years and they only took out 6 inches of my bowel but the prednisone is what has done all the damage to my body plus i was sick for 1 year and in march 2014 they found out i have another obstruction but the remicade has calmed it down so no surgery just yet but in april i have to get my top teeth removed cause they are so loose from the prednisone i was on years ago not looking forward to that thanks again chat later
