I was released from hospital 9 days ago after 6 days in hospital due to severe Crohn's flareup. The old symptoms that I had not felt for many years have now returned. Stomach cramps every few minutes, lots of gas passing, total liquid discharge (luckily no blood so far). The past 10 days have been getting my GI track accustomed to food again, and I wonder if this is a normal progression, and naturally what lies ahead. Has anyone else gone through a similar timeline? Thanks in advance.

I just flared recently myself and was experiencing symptoms much like I did in my early days with this disease. I got alot of cramps, D and really bad rectal spasms. I am on Pred again (grrr) but it is helping me to feel better. I would try to watch your diet closely and try to eat things that are easy to chew and easy to digest. Good luck!

Nanners,
Thanks for your input, it sounds like we have some similarities in situation and past history. Now I'm just trying to get my gut calmed and energy level stabilized. Lot's of gas passage and cramps yesterday, waiting to see what today brings. I travel quite a bit for my work, but I have a few weeks until my next trip, so hopefully all will stabilize.
