Hey all....
I havent been on in a long time and thought I would let you all know how i am. I had my first( hopefully only) resection back in aug of 06 and so far so good. Shortly after i had my surgury i started having pain agian but it ended up being my gall bladder was on its way out. I still think they should have just installed a zipper to get in when ever they need to. Oh btw my rescetion was a removal of about 6 1/2 inches at the terminal illeum.after the gall bladder thing things have been pretty good. I still have my days of not feeling quite right but so far its been worth it. I dont have the pain I did and best of all I am NOT taking pred any more. yeah

Sounds like things are going well for you. Are you on any maintenance meds though so you don't have to have any more surgeries? I am a firm believer on some kind of maintenance meds. I don't want another resection if I can help it. I only take Asacol and it is a very mild medication.
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.

Nanners, glad to hear your off pred. The fact that you don't have pain is wonderful. Sounds like you have been through alot. What are you currently taking??? Am I mistaken or did you have knee surgery????
