I had my first resection surgery in march of 2007, It's been over 3 years so I guess thats a good thing. I'm just ranting or well venting because I'm kind of deressed that I didn't make it 5 years. My surgeon told me wen I first met him that I would be needing surgery really realy soon, 2 months later,  I had surgery. After my surgery h told me that I will prbably make it 5 years before needing another. He's usualy pretty right on with times, so I guess I was just hoping I'd make it that long. I'm just scared that I'm going to be in and out of the hosital again, but I am pretty sure I need to call up my surgeon and make an appointment. I've never really gone into remision since surgery, but I have been able to tolerate the CD and everything rather well, it has ben totaly livable. Well starting a few days ago I have been able to tolerate it less and less. It's starting to remind me of what I wnt through before I was diagnosed. I'm lethargic, my kidneys hurt, miserable, severly anemic, my pain tolerance levels are back up and I can't eat. I'm going to call my Surgeon tomorrow, I'll let you all know how it goes! thanks for listening!

Have you had scans to determine what's going on? I'm so sorry you are feeling so bad. Crohn's seems like a very unpredictable disease. The best we can do is not to lose hope, and take care of ourselves the best that we can. I hope your docs are able to help, and you are feeling better soon.
