Hey folks,

how are you all doing? I really hope that you are all feeling well. WELLLLLL, I have finally had the temp bag removed. I had my surgery on the 12 of this month and all has gone excellent thus far. I got to say it does feel weird though. I have started to eat proper real solid food and it is going down a treat. My BM is still a little bit to pot, but the GI has assured me that this will return to normal quite soon. I am starting to have solid movements and the GI say that if all continues going so well, I could be out of hospital come wednesday.

I am sooooooooo looking forward to getting home to my wifde and kids, as some of you know, we had a little girl recently and I feel like I have had not had a proper chance to get to know her. My son is all happy cause daddy can play soccer and hockey with him soon. God, I miss that.

I have to stay on some maintance drugs, Asacol, however I will continude with my mms and my silver crystals.

once again, thanks for all your help and support...
god bless

thank bev. i sure plan to. although, i do suspect that it will take a little lomnger than I had hoped. In saying that, it will be a month for what I hope will be a long remission. Even the chrons in my chest is well under control. It is amazing what modern meds can do for you. Oh and MMS.

Grats on the success, Conor, I wish you many happy years of remission!
Just trying to be a "Regular Member".


Entocort 9 mg/day, Prednisone 20 mg/day, started Humira 1/22/08, started 100 mg of Azasan (Imuran) 2/20/08. Increased Azasan to 150 mg 10/15/08. Discontinued Humira 11/03/08 after extreme fatigue and moderate muscle aches. Started Cimzia 12/4/08. Down to 5 mg/day of Pred now, and will continue to taper until completely off as long as the other meds keep me off the porcelain.



I'm convinced that Prednisone is the root of all evil, and primarily responsible for global warming.

Hi Guy's,

Thanks for that. Once I am out of hospital and kicking, I will not be a stranger. Infact, hopefully I can share my experiences with other people who are learning of this disease.

I am currently working on a crohns web-site, and hopefully this will help others. Anyone interested in writting their story and what it has meant to them?


Regards


Conor

Hi Rider Fan,

of course I can. With the MMS, what I have foiunf is that all I am needing to take is a small daily drip and it is working miracles. What I had found with it was that when I was taking the other drugs such as steriods I was always hipper and really down on them. Not to mention eating like a horse. With MMS, it has brought me to a point where I have come off all meds, I still have a script for Asacol to keep the GI happy, but will not use them, with mms, it was bring my pains well under control espically in my chest. I have gained alot more energy and I have a real color about me. I find that now I am able to hold down a conversation because I have no need for all those other mind and soul distroying drugs. I would suggest to anyone to try it. It REALLY WORKED FOR ME! Also, with MMS, I would suggest that it is not something that you use for a long time. There is an element within it (cannot remeber of hand) that over expos to can cause more harm than good. Therefore, I tend to use it for two weeks and then switch to my Silver Crystals which is a natural Anti-Biotic.
