Well got my results from my CT scan and everything looks great. WOO! HOO!
The only thing that they noticed was some immflammtion in my esophogus due to GERD or she called it Esophogeo something and I told her that I quit taking my Protonix. She said that it is very important that I take it because if not it could get serious. Well that is all that I needed to hear, I'm going to start taking it on a regular basis.
Other than that I just really excited that the CT scan was good. No Humira and I can stay on Asacol.

Hey Wolfie,

Glad to hear the CT shows all is well. I myself take Prilosec and think I will pretty much be on it for life. Many Crohnies suffer with GERD along with their Crohns, so you are not alone there.

Big Hugs

Great news!

Hope the Asacol does the job for you. What a relierf not to have to think about Humira at this time.

Has your GI said how long you can go without a colonoscopy (or other tests) as long as you are feeling well?

Doctor said next scope would be 5 years unless I have problems.
Lets just hope that the Asacol works.
Thanks Bammer and Nanners big ((hugs)) to you both.
