Thanks guys for the responses on the Osmo Prep.  Unfortunately it was slow in responding.  I had a colonoscopy yeterday and had to bring a bucket in my van for the hour ride to the hospital.  An alltime low!  I do have a great husband though.  So I have been sick for 3 months, progressively worse with two trips to Urgent Care.  Anal fissure, c diff.  My GI wanted to make sure what was going on, so the colonoscopy.  Found my Crohn's had spread throughout and my Remicade of many years no longer working.  Now I'm on Asacol and Asacol Enemas and switching to Humira.  Hoping to have some luck, I was up all night sick and sick and tired of being sick like everyone else.  Did have a year of remission on the Remicade.  Also, I started Probiotics.  Figure it can't hurt.

Oh wow, I hope that Humira starts helping soon!  Hope you are able to hold some food in also so you can feel a little better after the scope, I know that isn't fun.  [[[[hug]]]]

Hi You must feel a little discouraged by the scope results. Sure hope the Humira works better. I live a hour's drive from the hospital that does the scopes. It sure can be tiresome at times with the prep. at least you have that over now. So when do you start the Humira? Hope you have a more restful night .lol gail

Hi Gail, Thanks for the kind words. I'm in bed, very sick and in lots of pain. The Humira is supposed to arrive today. I am clueless, my husband has called the doctors. I honestly have never been this sick with Crohn's. Food is th enemy for sure. If the doctor wants to see me, I'm not sure I can even go. LOL! I guess I could bring my bucket!!! Janice
