I am calling my GI doctor today, but wanted some input before I go. I had my resection 4 weeks ago today. I was feeling great all last week. As instructed by my surgeon, I was weaning off my Entecort, and took my last one Thursday morning. I felt fine until Friday night, after I ate. Yes, I had pizza, and no I probably shouldn't have. After I ate, say maybe an hour to two later, I started feeling nauseas, and I was just really tired, so I went to bed. I woke up every hour to 2 hours having D, and not normal D for me, but almost water. Was still very nauseas all night. Saturday morning I vomited twice. I thought it was strange that when I vomited, I threw up two of my pills I took Friday night, and they hadn't been digested at all. Started to feel progressively better over Saturday. All Saturday all i had to eat was crackers, and then chicken noodle soup for dinner. Sunday morning I felt so much better, had cereal for breakfast, mac and cheese for lunch, and then last night we went to eat for my birthday. I ordered chicken pot pie. Got home, started to feel the same way I felt Friday night, and went through the whole process again last night/early this morning, minus the vomiting. I just don't understand. I had been eating pretty normally and had nothing like this happen, so why all the sudden Friday night, and then again last night? Is it the steroid? If so, why did it wait until Friday night when I took my last one Thur. morning? I called the dr. on call Saturday, and he thought it sounded like food poisoning. I disagree, because neither my son nor my husband got sick from the pizza. Then I thought I maybe had a stomach bug, but for me to be feeling better and then it come back? AAaagghh! I just want to start feeling better!

try liquids for a bit, I am wondering if your body was not reacting to the volume (or consistancy) of the food involved and so instead of trying to digest something that would be too hard for it to digest, your body just voided it. Especially since your pills were not digested.

It sounds like a flare up to me. I agree you should try liquids for a bit and see if that helps. When you eat solids again, start with easy-to-digest foods: white rice, egg noodles, toast, and start with small quantities. If you continue to feel sick, definitely see your doctor. I hope you feel better!

Dr. said he does think it was either food poisoning or a stomach bug, seeing as I was feeling so good all last week and it came on so suddenly. He also noted that I have no pain where my Crohn's usually flares, lower right side. He felt around on my stomach and listened and felt confident it was not a flare. He gave me a script for Phenergan (something for the nausea), and told me to eat bland food for awhile and little amounts. He said if it doesn't go away by the end of the week, to definitely give him a call though. I'm relieved!

I'm wondering if perhaps the cheese is making you ill. It's not uncommon to develop dairy / lactose intolerance with this disease... and you were a bit better on the day that you stuck to crackers and soup, and didn't start to have more symptoms untik you had your mac and cheese.

Perhaps it might help you to cut out dairy for a while and see if that helps.

Best wishes,

ivy.
