I am amazed that Questran worked so well for you but I'm quite happy to hear of its' success.
I've had Crohn's for 22 years and have had 11 surgeries(resections).....I may not even have active Crohn's right now but the main problems I have just result from short bowel syndrome and all of the adhesions and scar tissue I have built up from all the surgeries. Its a mess in there! ;)
Anyway, I won't go through the list of meds I've tried, you name it I've had it(including several courses of remicade, etc). Questran didn't help me out too much but that is probably because I had already lost so much bowel before I was started on it. CONGRATS on your sucess with the med and my best to your husband. Happy New Year!
