    Hey krw , Thank you for asking after me , that is truly a wonderful gesture of friendhip and it is sincerely appreciated . I'm doing rather well , for the most part I can walk freely without a cane or rolator or any assistance . I had my hip replacement surgery august 23rd so its 2 months + and I'm healing well and I and the doctors are pleased with my progress , although my knee sometimes hurts and down the road I'll probably have to deal with that , for now I'm just enjoying being able to walk . Thank you again for asking after me , I don't really post that much because my pain is much better , but I try to support other folks here because of how I was supported thru my own crisis . The folks here are wonderful , I've made the most wonderful close friends with people I e-mail almost daily . I don't know that much about you , please tell me all about you , I do remember writing an trying to support you thru some difficulty you were having but    I'd love to be better  friends with you . thanks again !!! Your Friend Mikel  P.S. Now I recall krw it was your surgery !! How are you doing now ? Are you recovering well ? I hope it worked out well friend , forgive me for not recalling right away and please update me on your recovery !!

Hey Mikel, thanks for writing back...I am SOOOO glad you are doing so well! That is awesome! I know we have not talked much but you just stuck out in my mind! You have been thru so much and you are still able to get on here and inspire others by your positive attitude! You never ask for a "pity party"! Not that many on here do... everyone seems very strong! When I am having a bad day or hurt really bad I just try to think of all of y'all and remind myself I am not alone. I am very blessed to be able to come on here and be reminded that it could be so much worse.

For whatever reason my signature didn't attach to my post - any tips on why it won't?

Mikel- in a nutshell I have Crohns and have had several abdominal surgeries so I have lots of adhesions that cause a lot of pain. I had my large intestine removed and have been having issues pretty much ever since. Lots of tummy problems and female issues as well. I only have 1 ovary and 1 tube left so I hope and pray that will be enough for a baby!

Hope everyone has a great day!!! :)
I am a 29 yo female, Dx with UC in 97, hospital stays monthly, tons of blood transfusion, bowel rest on TPN, prednisone, asacol, sulfa, imuran, VSP
99- multiple failed remicade treatments, more hospital stays
finally in 2001 had enough and had total colectomy (j-pouch) surgery, 1st step was good, then the reversal was not such a breeze, got peritinitis which was awful!!
the rest of 2001-2006 were amazing!
now having problems again- they are thinking Crohns.- have been on Humira with no luck
