 Turned on the computer this morning and AOL has a story of Lindsay Aronson Ess. She went into surgery for a small bowl resection because of Crohns and the surgery went badly. Infection , coma , organ failure, and the loss of both arms and legs. She is a remarkable woman . You may want to check this out.
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

Yep, MMMNAVY, every time I feel sorry for myself, all I need do is look at others.

She's amazing!!!! I don't have that kind of strength.

:)
bee propolis caps 500mg one cap twice/day
omegas 369 caps one cap twice/day
probiotics 10 billion cfu once/day
vitamins C-calcium ascorbate (easy on the gut) and vitamin A each once/day
Prodiem fibre supplement one cap before bed
I've also altered my diet (no junky stuff at all, processed, fast-foods, refined sugars, ect) and exercise regularly.
I went from 30+ bloody BM's/day with lots of lower back pain to an average of 5/day no bleeding no back pain and completely formed stools, still have severe urgency issues.

This makes me never want to complain about anything again. It says they haven't take legal action yet though...with bills in the millions I sure would be.
Diagnosed with Crohn's in May of 2008.
Currently taking: Prednisone, pentasa, omeprazole, and humira. Using probiotics and a multivitamin.

Nostra , I had a friend in the army who use to say, every day above ground is a good day. He was right. I made it home, he did not. I try not to complain too much or feel bad about my health.
