Oh and as an added bonus, I am a FAT girl with Crohns...  
I am getting ready for my first resection....   My mom always said my beauty was on the inside...   sooo what does it mean when my insides are a mess???   Thanks mom!  I bet I inhereted Crohns from your side of the family.  
NO GUTS-NO GLORY!!!    So, once I get my guts removed...   My "Glory" days are over....

After my colon resection in 2008 I wanted to get a "semi-colon" tatoo to celebrate!
Nope. Haven't done it. I'm such a chicken.

Crohn's and UC are pretty darn crappy, but if you can't laugh at yourself, you'll cry......I'd much rather laugh.
2001 Dx'd with UC.  No remission.  No improvement with Remicade.  5/2008 surgery, removal of 6" of left side colon.  Dx changed to Crohn's.  Remission for 8-9wks after surgery, symptoms returned after resuming 6MP.  Changed maintenance med to Methotrexate (MTX) and had great results with IM injections.  Nausea and symptoms returning with oral MTX.  Switched back to IM injections and am slowly improving.

I am not a chicken and that's sounds like a fantastic idea for a tattoo!! Esp since I, too, am a semi-colon!

If they take out half....does that mean you have a Hemi....colon tongue
Dx'd '90 (emergency rupture), symptoms ignored long before that, '03 fistulas and bad flagyl reactions, B12 weekly, Pentasa [until I surrender to the bigger meds]
I'm riding on the escalator of life....

I had thought about just under my hair-line at the back of my neck.  Not much opportunity for stretching out of shape, and with it being just a tiny dot over a comma, I could possibly get away with it just looking like a few moles.  Also, only visible if my hair is cut short or in a ponytail.
 
My Mother is *very* against tattoos.  I cannot *believe* I am over 40 and *still* let her influence my decisions.  Gah!  I just keep telling myself it is because I 'respect' her.

Pshhh, I have a few... Moms get over it. If they start *****ing at you, just grab your stomach and say the stress is making you belly hurt and that you probably "got" Crohns from her side of the family....

hahaha I am contemplating a non-crohns tattoo and know my mom and dad would hate it. They still have some control over me. It is going to be in a spot I can easily cover up most of the time but I still hate thinking about doing something they would hate.
27 Year old married female law student (last year!!). Diagnosed w/ CD 4 years ago, IBS for over 10 years before that, which was probably the CD. I am sort of lactose intollerant too but can handle anything cultured and do well w/ lactose pills and lactaid. For crohns I am currently on Pentasa 4 pills/4x day and hysociamine prn. I also have bad acid reflux and have been on PPI's since age 13. I have been through prilosec, prevacid, and nexium. Currently I am on Protonix in the morning and Zantac at night.  I take xanax prn for situational anxiety (aka no easy bathroom access).
