Exercise can help prevent the stress and depression that often accompany Crohn's disease. I believe if you have just had surgery you should follow your physician's guidelines on resuming your exercise routine.
I have never heard of exercise being harmful for Crohn's per se. My hubby has Crohn's and he is very active.
Take care and keep posting
I know I should be exercising too! I just am so pooped sometimes. I have a long commute 2 kids and never enough time it seems. I also live where it is cold now and I miss going for walks outside J
I should try harder!
I also have to poop when I exercise FitzyK23. I don’t know why but if I get really upset or stressed the same thing happens to me. I have to potty immediately.
