   So this happens every so often. I'll feel great for a couple of days. Then I'll wake up in the morning with bloating and lots of gas, and my farts exrete like a clear liquid, and sometimes a little mucus. Whats the story with that? I later had a BM (kinda soft) and felt a bit better.
   Last night I had alot of beans for dinner, but regardless, it happens every so often. Its a real downer. Im scared to let air out in the mornings without sitting on the toilet cause i dont want to dirty myself.
   Anyone have this issue? Anyone have any ideas to stop it?
 
I am currently taking Apriso and a half packet of Questran a day.

of course alot of us have that issue...the shart (a fart that lets a little bit a poo out) is a fear for all of us...

Yup, I don't even take a chance on trying to pass gas. If the room starts smellin, they can't blame it on me! (unless it's the bathroom!)
Dx'd w/ Crohn's in 1979 at age 14. Bad flare 2008 but no health insurance so I dealt with it. Colonoscopy in July 2009 caused a perforated colon, emergency bowel resection. 2 fistula's, perianal and perivaginal. 
Dr. wants to try Humira...STILL waiting on that! Not sure what is taking so long...
Currently just take a probiotic, a multivitamin, calcium, magnesium, and fish oil. I also take Tramadol 50 mg and Klonopin (for anxiety) as needed.
 
Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance!

That's a true fear...somedays are definately worse than others. I have less symptoms: gas, bloating, sharting, mucous, blood, pain, etc. when I follow the SCD diet.
Diagnosed with CD 2006.  Refused to take meds until recently started Colazal. 
 Currently on Prednisone 40mg. Tapering down, now on 20mg.

Yup, a common problem. I would never dream of passing gas anywhere other than the bathroom, it would smell terrible and yes it might cause soiling. Of course i can't control it in the middle of the night and if i feel particularly sore or bloated i would wear old pants under nightwear. Too much information? Sometimes at work i can be in agony trying to hold on because we don't have very good toilet facilities at work.

Chatter: Lucky you that you have that much control still!!! I can't imagine only passing gas in a bathroom, I'd probably blow up, for real! Thank God my hubby understands. I mean somedays I would be walking in & out all day for that. Work used to be a problem....Had to be creative, make up excuses to leave the room, & occassionally appologize, usually for the "internal" noises...

OH the life of crohns.

Sharts, never heard the term before. No explination needed!blush lol I actually changed the type of underware I wear to bed because of them. smhairOne's where if I quickly roll onto my stomach and out of bed, run to the bathroom they usually hold it in. Usually (Sigh)!tongue

Hi dinkydee, Yes i count myself as lucky but not that lucky, reason can control is because i have sub acute obstruction and most days nothing gets through to my j pouch until my abdo is about bursting then it gets pushed through. This process usually builds up all day and then by the time i am on way home i am in agony. Just diagnosed with CD after 28yrs thinking i had UC. Now that was a different matter before surgery i really did have many accidents, literally had to throw myself at the toilet sometimes and travelling was a nightmare. The only good thing about my surgery is that it has taken away much of the urgency but then that has been replaced with the problem i just described. Can't win can we!
I clearly remember the days you are talking about, apart from the pain it makes you really anxious, never knowing if your going to make it to the toilet. BEST WISHES AND KEEP UP THE GOOD FIGHT.

Ohhhh boy, aint we got fun. Passing gas is like playing Russian roulette, you never know if the chamber is empty or loaded. I can't tell you how many times I have rushed to a public restroom only to pass gas, but , it beats the heck out of spending time with poopy drawers on...
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.

Grandpa22,
It is from the movie "Along came Polly" with Ben Stiller and Jennifer Aniston.

I think it has happened at least once to all of us. And once it happens once, we are always afraid that its going to happen again, hence our fears of farting without being on the toilet first. Hugs!

I almost ALWAYS wear light days just for this reason. Otherwise, I'd go through too many underwear.
