This is my first post on the website. I have been reading posts for awhile, and decided now was a good time to join.
I was just diagnosed with Crohns 2 months ago. I took Entocort, and now I am trying to be on 6mp (75mg). However, i have been throwing up every time i take it. They are going to put me on a lower dose and a generic brand.
But - about the weight thing. My favorite thing to eat before I was diagnosed with Crohns was salad! And, it was the primary way for me to loose weight. Well, of course I can't eat that anymore. Nor can i eat any raw vegetables or really healthy things for me. So, how exactly am i suppose to keep from gaining weight?? I have been so upset about this. Because I have been gaining weight from not being able to eat the vegetables that I want! UGH!
And I am going on vacation with my husband in 3 weeks and I want to look good :). I mean, what is the other option, just eating really small portions and try to eat healthy things. No junk - that is so hard. Especially when my husbands favorite things to eat are junkie foods.
So, i feel ya. I don't know what to do. But, i am so upset about it. And a little depressed because I want to be thinner, but can't do it.
