He continues to have severe fatigue and cold symptoms for several days afterward. His weight remains stable.

His next infusion is December 4. He will have testing to determine the level of inflammation in January... [November 18] Tom saw his cardiologist and they have adjusted his medication. His heart is functioning normally. There is no way to determine if his heart was weakened by a tear in his heart which has healed. His cholesterol remains normal and it was normal before his stroke. Doctors do not know why plaque totally clogged his carotid artery and caused his stroke. His infusions for Crohn's disease continue to cause sore throat and cold-like side effects after an infusion and occur occasionally in between infusions, requiring him to rest for several days.

He is no longer having side effects from his last infusion....[March 11] Tom's colonoscopy is March 11 instead of March 13....[March 23] Tom's colonoscopy showed no inflammation. However, he must continue to have the infusions every two months. They can help with severe headaches he has experienced but not the severe fatigue or cold and throat symptoms. He is very disappointed. He is slowly adjusting to this information and what will be his new normal.
Update Tuesday, March 24, 2020
Tom had an infusion March 23. He is having difficult side effects. And he is caring for his mother who is recovering from surgery.
