Thank you every one! I'm a bit embarrassed being such a big baby about
this anesthesia thing. And I'm especially embarrassed because most of you have gone and are going thru so much worse than I. I've been so blessed w/such a mild form of Crohn's and so many good years ... you have no idea how much I admire and respect those of you who have gone thru and are going thru so much w/your Crohn's!!!!! You are all my heroes.
Gail Gachrons, thanks for the baby wipe tip. I've not been out to the grocery store yet to buy some. Its so nice and peaceful here at home, just hubby and I and the animals and 10 acres of peace. I'm just really in a turmoil about
this surgery, not the surgery itself, but the agreeing to anesthesia and surrendering the final decision to some surgeon. THAT is such a problem for me! *sigh*
Ah, Sniper, I never thought of the Preparation H 'cause the area is always so moist. Duh. Never thought about
wiping again after. (((hugs))) to you and Camilla.
Marie-Claire, I didn't find any brown underwear but I am now wearing purple, magenta and navy underwear. All nice and new.
Cleo!!! Queen of De Nial! How GOOD to hear of the turn around in your life!!!! I'm so happy for you! FINALLY someone who appreciates you! You have made my day!!! I feel better already just reading your post and knowing how much better life is for you now!
Nanners, thank you. I brought this on myself, full well knowing that it was most likely symptomatic remission rather than true remission and diddling around and NOT taking the Pentasa faithfully, and then not taking it at all. I will say in my own defense tho that I DID stay on my Imuran faithfully. I started the Pentasa again immediately after the symptoms started but it was hard to get back into the habit of faithfully downing all 16 capsules a day and now .... it may well be too late. We know most of the obstruction is due to scarring but given the response to the Pentasa some of it has to be inflammation as well. They say I am a walking time bomb now for that obstruction to take offense to something I eat and .... ah well. I've known that for some time, no surprise there. I sure hope SOMETHING works for YOU SOON so that you can put a stop to the "perking" and "activity" in your gut!!
Sugar-Marie! You are soooo right! I have now learned the hard way to NEVER trust a fart!
Some people are like Slinkies... Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
