I can eat broccoli if I steam it til its limp. Doesn't seem to bother me at all. If it usually makes you gassy, you can try taking some Beano or something similar before hand.
For me personally, Immodium takes 3-4 hours to kick in. I don't know if thats normal or not, just my observation. Use your best judgement on when to take it.
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!
