I went for my second follow-up with my GI yesterday and it's still not looking good. I have never flared this long EVER since I've had Crohn's. He is still working with me on trying to avoid surgery, but it seems like our mission now is to get me in the best shape possible before we do surgery. When he pressed around he said he could still feel a mass :( and it hurt so bad. I'm just so frustrated right now. At least I can eat, the major problems I'm having now is the lower side pain and my bm's are unpredictable. I'm still following a pretty strict diet, avoiding dairy and low fiber, gluten free.
I want to give a shout out to my doctor. . . he is amazing. He could see I was upset after her pressed around on my side yesterday and it hurt something fierce, he looked at me and gave me a little hug and said are you alright, I just told him I appreciate all of them for taking such good care of me (remember I don't have insurance) and they do a lot of extra paper work and stuff for me. I feel lucky to have such a good doctor. Thanks everyone for listening.
Happy Holidays and Hugs!!!

Tried Remicade 2 yrs ago for about a year and a half and loved it, got off it due to costs, tried Humira and it just didn't work for me so now back on Remicade.
