i've been diagnosed with crohn's for 3 years and the whole time been extremely stubborn about taking my meds and being pro active.  This is the first time since then that i've actually taken my meds and kept up on them.  My doc prescribed entercort and for the first time in these 3 years i have no symptoms what-so-ever.  No diaherra, no joint pain, no stomach pain and no fatigue.  i suppose i was pretty dumb for not taking my meds as i should have a long time ago cuz i could have felt fine all along.  now i'm going for surgery on wednesday for this stinkin fistula and if that heals up i will be a normal person lol. just some nice thoughts!!
