Again Welcome to the Crohn's Forum.
I was diagnosed in 2003 and have not yet had any surgery. I have a great Dr who has me on Pentasa & Azathioprine, which is an immunosuppressant. At the moment I will be on them both forever.
Apart from a sudden hospitalization in 2006 I have work full time for most of the time since my diagnosis. The hardest part has been learning that I have to restrict my social life sometimes in order to make it to work. Gradually I have found I am able to do more as my disease remains under control.
I also have to be careful with Gluten, especially anything with MSG. The only way to know what foods work for you is trial and error.
