Crohns, Remicade and Strep throat

by Rich
(Clovis ca)

My son, 28 yrs. old has Crohns. For the last year or so getting Remicade infusions every couple of months. He hasn't had one in a few months. He has strep throat and can't get rid of it. He's on his 4th round of antibiotics and we're worried his system is down from the Remicade and of course worried about surgery. I think that may be the next step.I hear that removing tonsils is no small matter, i.e., infections, bleeding etc. Anyone have any experience with this kind of situation? Any input would be appreciated.


Thanks and God bless,
Rich
