I just thought I would say hey!  Been away for a while dealing with all kinds of personal crap that's still ongoing but I missed you all.

Hi to y'all. I also have been MIA a lot the past few months. 4 upper endoscopies since Dec, and many weird complaints I attribute to low B12 and humira. I missed everyone too, and all that great advice.
Humira, pred and entocort 1/08
3 small bowel resections, 1 for perforation, 2 for strictures

i guess not feeling great has prompted me to come back.  I flared last night.  Knew it was coming.  I could barely walk.  I'm also experiencing some hemmy action that I hope is not a fissure or anal tear of some sort.  I'm working from home today and it's possible I may call my doc to keep him in the loop.

I went back on Pentasa for a while and I did nothing..the probiotics helped somewhat.  Now just flaring.  I didn't want to go on anything stronger because we're trying to get pregnant..I'm 41..I don't have a lot of time!  I may even be pregnant now..I'll know in a few days for sure.

I'm really disappointed that after my resection I never got a good remission.  I've cried about it and been mad about it, but what can you do?

I promised myself that after I have a baby, I'll go on something better to help put me in remission.

Hey good to see you again.  Sorry you are feeling bad again.  Alot of the "oldies" have been missing and we were wondering where you all were.  Don't be such a stranger.

Been living with Crohn's Disease for 32 years.  Currently on Asacol, Prilosec 60 mg, Estrace, Prinivil, Diltiazem, Percoset prn for pain and Calcium.  Resections in 2002 and 2005.  Recently diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and doing tests to see if I have Inflammatory Arthritis or AS.

If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.
