I had a resection and supposedly I'm in remission but I still have good days and bad days. I'm finding I have to avoid certain foods and listen to my body when it says REST!!!!. I'm going through a really bad time the last week or so. Every day i take a nap and my tail bone has been really hurting. I started to take cymbalta (an anti-depressant) a couple of months ago and that has really helped my joint pains more then anything else I've taken.
