you are all so wonderful and supportive, thank you so much. You are right, I quit twice in the past when I was pregnant with my girls, so I'm sure I can do it again.
Thanks again, so hot here in Greece today doesn't help alot.
cleo35: my doc says there is no permanent solution, that's why it's a long-life disease. There are people who were lucky to have surgery and went into remmission for years, but there are others -according to him- that had a recurrence only 2-3 months after their surgery. For me personally, it is not an easy decision to have surgery because I'm very scared of the procedure, plus I haven't used all the "big guns" in terms of medication, meaning I haven't tried azathioprine, Remicade or Humira yet, so he wants to see if we can use some of these first before deciding to have surgery. Generally speaking here in Greece, surgery for Crohns is considered the last option.
