thanks mesh & mela re;meds for crohns. i'll look up the meds, don't know what half of that stuff is...i have colonoscopy sched. for fri. AM;symptoms are beginning to recede, but i've had enough experience w/crohns not to assume anything...let the doc take a good look;i am scared, i'll admit. i was very bad...after my reg. GI DR retired, i didn't get another one until recently...my PCP insisted & you don't argue with her;last colonoscopy was lots of yrs. ago...lots.no need no symptoms;ate whatever i wanted...good yrs, except for the cfs,panics that keep me in, etc. Yet my body feels like & i saying  "remission again"...hope so;my  life from 16-17+- mid 40's was hell cause of crohns. I appreciate all the info from all you guys...you are all so nice to me & i wonder why sometimes...i talk way too much;i get too self-involved;i'm mostlyjust a general pain...my own brother thinks so, course he's perfect;it's his wife, tho...she doesn't like the truth i told her;we were friends until all  she did was complain to me about my brother;told her i couldn't be & wouldnT be in the middle of that. She still hasn't forgiven me or my mom who had the same experience.that woman needs some help.you do not go outside the marriage unless it's to a minister or counselor. it breaks my heart;i really liked her;i love her cause my bro does, but i don't like her like i used to.she plain doesn't speak to me except to say a cold hi or bye.as usual, i'm roaming all over the place...sorry i am going to stick to the subject from now on, yeah yes, feel relief! i do! the rules are for me, too, & i apologize to one & all for the unnecessarry lenght of some of mine.I really am sorry...got too carried away that someone was listening! time to calm down. take care; redface embarassedpainter
