Um my old land lord is kicking me out of the UC forum (no, not really) and I need a new place.  I'll just re-use the intro I did there if that's OK.  I got my news this afternoon at work from my GI.  I did the pill cam 10 days ago and that was the last piece of the puzzle for him, although he was pretty sure all along.
 
Anyways, Hello all, here is my intro.
 
My name is Mike, 43, fairly recently diagnosed (still not completely sure what is going on, UC or Crohns).
 
I have learned a lot reading this forum, thank you.
 
I have the tendency to use the word a@@ a lot and have meant no offense, but saying I was having a bit of a rough time never seemed to convey how bad things are/have been as compared to saying something is kicking my a@@.
 
I have learned that there are a wide variety of symptoms to this.  I try not to say much because of my ignorance/learning curve.  As I understand it, a flare is when you have active inflammation.  Most have daily symptoms that really indicate, "hey, my system is jacked up", but I don't.  I only know things are bad, as they have been since last August, when I seem to have what I call an "episode".  As near as I can tell from learning the terminology, it would be extreme urgency and some of the most painful cramping I could ever imagine.  I got stung by a bark scorpion a couple weeks ago (I live in Arizona) and realized I would rather deal with that over my unpredictable episodes.  I get severe pain in my gut, it kicks my butt (literally and figuratively) for a couple hours, wipes me out, leaves me weak and makes me worry about every little thing I eat for the next couple days.  And more and more recently is lasts up to 3-4 days before I settle down.  Looking back I realize I have been suffering for the last 15 years or so, just never severly enough long enough to get to a doc to check it out.
 
I can entirely sympathize/empathize with those who are suffering more than I.  I realize this is not a contest of who has it worse.  I am guessing I am catching this early enough that I have not become fully flared and completely symptomatic, just guessing.  I also completely understand and relate to the frustration voiced by those who have the well meaning friends and family.  I was completely floored by a dear friend whom I thought really understood when she said that she thought doctors were just calling this UC and an auto immune disease to just push pills and not get people in today's society to eat healthier.
 
As for those whom I recently read were going through spousal/partner problems.  My $.02 is that if they are blaming the illness for their unhappiness in the relationship, they weren't good partners anyways.  As the sufferer in my relationships, I wish those around me, including the wife, would just shut the heck up some days.  I am hurting, there is nothing I can do, there is nothing you can do, so while I am hurting the most is NOT the time to offer the "try this" advice.
 
Anyways, I just finally made the time to introduce myself.  At least those of you who read might have a bit of understanding of where I am coming from since I have not posted here that much.
 
P.S.  I had to leave myself a note to do this, same as the one that said look for a forum on UC, because my short term memory seems to have gotten so bad.  Even worse now with the Entocort.  But I am getting longer time frames between episodes.
 
If my terminolgy, guessing or thinking is incorrect, Please let me know and please also know I NEVER mean to offend.  I am a smart ass a lot but am trying not to be here especially since I don't really "know" anyone here yet.
 
So, nice to meet you all!

Ah well you're more than welcome to stay here! Sorry about the circumstances though, Crohn's does truly suck but getting diagnosed is at least some of the battle done, now hopefully the docs can figure out a good treatment that works for you and gets you better, in the meantime this is deffo the best place to be to get support and advice! As for your dear friend.....its a shame there are people out there who are sceptical about this illness, luckily most in my life have always been very compassionate and understanding towards me and my Crohn's......however theres a few who have been really inconsiderate (now don't get me wrong I'd never in a million years wish this disease on anyone but sometimes I would like for them to experience it for just ONE day and maybe then they'd finally be more understanding and respectful about it!)

Oh and my short-term memory is totally shot too, docs reckon its down to my meds but like I said to them - I'd rather be scatty and living a normal life than be sharp as a knife but glued to the toilet!

Welcome to healingwell's crohns forum. Since it is a family friendly forum you might want to restrain yourself on language a bit and we are a bit more hard sixes then the UC forum.  As to the wife, I think she might want you to get better and is just going to do say and do whatever it takes to do her part in helping you in that battle. I am sure she has wanted you to "shut the heck up" too, it is not easy to have a sick spouse. Caregivers do burn out, and until you have been a primary caregiver it is very difficult to understand that burden that is placed upon them.
 
As to those with advice about how we treat our diseases, there are some really great responses on here to those you do not care about.  LOL

Thanks so much.
 
I guess I will be giving up the lialda and switching to pentasa.  Short of search all the old threads, can anyone give me the long and short of pentasa and their experience with it?
 
MMMNAVY, by hard sixes are you meaning more strict in enforcing the slippage in the use of 4 letter words and such?

Yep, and if a former sailor can restrain themselves, so can you. (Even though it really does express it quite well.)

Pentasa is a med for mild to moderate CD, and generally is also used as a maintence med for those in remission or post surgerical. Nanners is on it and is usually more then happy to share her experience with it. Plus you can look at the medication links in Ivy6's sig.

This is my all-time favorite introduction to the forum. I know you are suffering but some of your comments and bluntness had me rolling on the floor laughing my a@@ off. I look forward to your posts in the future.

Whoo hoo, another one from the Air Force :-)
 
Son was on Pentasa and it didn't appear to do too much for him but obviously I don't have x-ray vision eyes!
I guess if it works, great (not as many side affects as some) if it doesn't....... Cross that bridge if you come to it.

I just reread my first post and it may have come off that I was mocking you. It is just the opposite though and I just love your style of expressing yourself and the fact that you like to tell it like it is. Stay positive and good luck with the testing.

Well MMMNavy has me on the wrong med:) I have been successfully maintained for the last 5 years on Asacol the sister med to Pentasa.

And since I too am a moderator, I have to kindly request you not use that languange either. Sorry!!

I have no intention of "swearing" if I can help it.  Sometimes when typing fast to keep up with my thinking some words make it to print, as that is how I was thinking and my "filter" doesn't engage all the way.  The whole intent of that statement was to pre-aplogize smilewinkgrin   f I did slip.
 
Thanks for the welcome everyone.
 
I try to infuse humor and sarcasm to preset humor where possible to keep things light.  Thanks for that compliment.
I'm here til thursday!  Try the veal and tip your server!
 
Another line I used when describing my cyclical problems when ranting......
 
So I started taking the Entocort 2 months ago, I had a great 2 weeks almost immediately that caused me to generate a thread, How do you know when you're in remission.  Then I had an episode that lasted 4 days.  Lather, rinse, repeat for 2 months.  Each time I feel better and better right before the anvil falls on my head and crushes all hope.  I don't get it.  I guess I do, I am learning I have to be even more concerned than ever what the ingredients are in stuff I am eating.  Rice a roni for God's sake!  Really! Who did I piss off now?  It had dried onion bits and MSG.  Man I wished I had seen that previously. But I had made it to day 16, got slammed, read the ingredients and cried.  Cried because I was too stupid to check them before. 
 
Seriously, junk food does not hurt me........McD's, or just cheeseburgers in general don't hurt.  I can eat fried fish, turkey, ham waffles hash browns eggs and hey almost any candy will do.....but don't put any lettuce on it.  There is fruit in my yogurt, some anyway, but don't give me any fresh fruit.  Bananas are OK.
 
And Honey?!?!  Really??!!!!!  I thought this was the most natural harm free food you could eat.  I thought no one anywhere could have problems with honey!!!  Anybody else?
 
Each time I make it so far and feel really good, I get crushed.  It is so disheartening.  For me it's the pain..........I have no idea if or what kind of pain most of you suffer.  I could handle the going to the bathroom to an extent, but the extreme pain makes me understand why some people contemplate suicide over it.  I am not, BTW, I am just saying I can understand.  I truly don't understand this darn cycle.
 
Stop the insanity!!  Or if anyone has any insight to help me cope with the confusion and the crappy roller coaster ride I would appreciate it.  Sorry to say I AM feeling a bit sorry for myself at the moment.  I (i'm at work at the moment) am afraid to put my suit on and go into the factory (I work in a cleanroom and have to wear a full clean room suit, kinda like the old Intel commercials) I may not get out of my suit fast enough.  Thanks for listening/reading, pearls of wisdom are appreciated.

I know its difficult because you want to eat all those things, but the truth is you should stay away from processed foods like that. They really are going to do nothing but hurt you. I feel for you because I have the worst sweet tooth ever, but after feeling like crap one too many times, I finally gave.

I personally follow a low residue diet and that works well for me. I have to avoid alot of the roughage of fruits and veggies too, otherwise I will end up with obstructive like episodes. Also, right now you are in the midst of a flare and that makes things even harder. Hopefully your doc will get you on the right meds soon, and things will start improving.

And feel free to vent away, you are among those who truly understand.

Hello and welcome...there are a lot of us who use sarcasm and humour here...if we didn't, I don't know how I'd deal with this DD (darned disease, or whatever you think for the first letter...)...I love coming here and reading posts from some of the members...they can just cheer me up when I need it...Oh, and we do like the potty humour (but we cannot get to raunchy, we have good moderators...kids often come and read here too...and this is a place where everyone gets to feel welcome and be a venerable as can be...without fear of flaming, retribution, or being judged)...oh and many of us have been in the military too...Reserve Sailor here...

Alas, that never ending blasted cycle, like a merry-go-round that never lets you get off...hmmm, nature of the beast...or disease I should say...still bites though...

I was wondering at your high dosage of Vit C...it can be kinda difficult on the gut...heck I can't even do orange juice many days...so I was just thinking...
And yes, I do understand about the junk food...sometimes a small happy meal sits real good on my tummy...whereas a healthier meal will just tear me up...and I understand about not being able to eat fruits or veggies...I am waiting for the day for that salad with vinegrette...mmmmmmm my mouth waters...carrots, assorted salad greens, fresh tomatoes...those are my forbidden foods...makes me want them more...

Undone... you are KILLING ME. God grant me a salad, please!!!!!!!!!!! No carrots, I hate'em.

Hi Md, nice to meet you. Are you still on the Entorcort? They jack you some, not like steroids, but hey, what's a life with CD without a little roid rant? Ah, good time, good times.

Here's the thing about junk food, you cannot see the damage this stuff causes you. So please take care. If your going to go there, get the little burger. Oh and if your constipated this is pretty much the only laxitive you will need. Think about that.

Ok, funny-ish aside. A friend didn't want her kids to eat fast food. So I, being the Auntie, started programming them early. We'd go to Mc D's in the winter for the toys and the play land, always after they ate and if they said, I want to try that, I'd say, "No you don't, it'll give you fast runny poopies"

Both after their first Mc D bday party, an inevitable part of a kids life these days, told me, Auntie M, I don't like McD's, it made me poop and poop and it wasn't even NORMAL.

Now 9 and 11, neither will eat it. Ah, my work there is done. ;)

One thing I can say is that it is best to eat as close to the source as possible. Your right, those chemicals will hurt ya big time, as you found out. It wasn't the rice that was the problem.

Avoid nuts, seeds, popcorn, skins and fiber that doesn't break down easily, meat or veg.

Treat yourself to the things you really like, cuz hey, you'll get all ranty if you don't, and then see how that goes.

And hey just cuz you have the shh.. poops, doesn't mean you get to be a sh... poop.

Welcome to the boards, may your find your remission soon!

PS, when your cramping like that a few tablespoons of plain white rice really shortens the episodes. Give it a try (no oil/butter, consider it medicine)
CD 24 years. Multiple surgeries in past 10 yrs. 4 year Illeostomy. Mesh rejection. Too close to death, twice. Large inscisional hernia. Perpetually underweight. Short bowel syndrom.

Got married for the only time 2008. Survive because of the love of good friends, and because I can. Happy to be alive. IBD needs more awareness and more voices willing to speak up. BE well.

Do you think the high fat content of those foods slows you digest tract down? I know that higher fat contents usually help me out.

Hey, just wanted to jump in and say don't sweat the name of your illness. I usually just call it IBD and leave it at that. The diagnostic process is a long one, and the treatments are the same. The only issue might be assessing your risk for colon cancer - if it's UC you really want to watch out for that.

I started down this path taking Asacol and then switched to Pentasa. On scope I have inflammation at the rectum and cecum, but not in between. I'm sure there's small bowel stuff going on for me, and I've had a stenosis in the esophagus and inflammation in my stomach, so my theory is that I need a med that's more effective higher up. I thought Pentasa would be a good match for me and it has given me a good few years w/o significant blood or diarrhea. But then someone told me that Pentasa is for lower bowel and Asacol is for upper so there you go.

Sorry that you are having so many crampy episodes and pain. That is awful. If you were female I'd tell you to track your menstrual cycle and see if you can correlate to that. Maybe you should track your wife's? ;-)

I have been taking the Vit C for years......up until last Sept.  I went if for my scope and no one could believe that the only daily anything I took was just Vit C.  I take it because I firmly believe it helps keep me healthy, especially during cold and flu season, and makes me feel better faster if I do get ill.
 
Toronto
I am still on the Ento, but will start to taper as soon as I make it a month without an episode.  My blood pressure, heart health and liver panel are all OUTSTANDING.  I do watch the junk food.  Although the craving and NEED for sweets is insatiable.  I have not had popcorn since I was in my mid-20's.
 
MMMNavy
CLOCKWORK...............ALWAYS!!  Even when I have an episode I return to schedule the next day.  I tend to think of the oil as a lubricant and that it allows everything to slide right by the inflammation(s).
 
Kaz
HAHAHHAHAHA, my wife and I discussed that, but no.  My next scope is 3 years for the colon cancer assessment.  I was pretty clear for my first one, no history of THAT in the family.
 
What is this SALAD you speak of.
 
How in the name of (fill in the blank yourself) does anyone take so many pills?  I thought my other pills were big.  I had to buy a new XL Pill Minder that is double sided to fit all of my daily pills into.  Is there supposed to be room for food after pills? rolleyes

You know what's funny? My doctor actually told me that in his opinion, I'm better off eating junk. He told me "off the record", because as a doctor, he isn't really supposed to say that haha. My parents have always criticized me for eating junk all the time, and have told me that it's probably half the reason why I felt so bad pre-op. My father came with me to my final doctor's appointment before my surgery, and I asked my doctor about diet, and you should've seen the look on my father's face when he saw the doctor telling me to eat junk. A lot of you will probably think my doctor is an idiot for telling me that, but he's actually one of the best GIs in the city for Crohn's disease.

I'd also like to commend you on your attitude - a sense of humor really helps you get through the rough parts, doesn't it? I am a lot like you though, I hate when people try giving me advice on what to do. My boss is a great example, she constantly tells me that I should be drinking all these teas and stuff to help me feel better. When I'm not feeling well, the last thing on my mind is sitting around drinking 20 cups of tea a day. LOL. I know that people mean well, but I tend to like to be left alone when I'm not feeling well.

mdf34,

If you are a true believer of Vitamin C, then you must check out vitamin D. Google 'vitamin d Crohn's'. While you are at it google 'vitamin d cancer', 'vitamin d heart disease' or vitamin d anything. The research in the past 5 years is overwhelming. And after reading the info you may want to get your vit D blood levels checked. It couldn't hurt.
DX ulcerative colitis Feb08, possible Crohn's colitis DX March 2010.
58 y/o straight male. Allergy to shellfish contributed to 1st major flare.
No Meds, allergic to Mesalamine. I find Psyllium seeds especially helpful.

Boswellia, E. Coli Nissle (Mutaflor), turmeric, fish oil, Saccharomyces boulardii, Jarrodophilus, multiple vitamin, extra D3, C, high gamma E, magnesium, Avoca Asu, slippery elm, phosphatityl choline, glutamine, sometimes VSL3. Diet includes copious amounts of fruit and vegetables, no soda, tea instead of coffee, very few processed foods, no carrageenan.
