Does anyone else have mucus? Dr said at last c'oscopy (2wks ago) that I had some colitis. Is the mucus from the colitis and not CD?
I've dealt with fatigue (feel like Superwoman when on 'roids), insomnia ('roids), bloating before surgery and the last 2-3 weeks suffering from severe gas (do NOT trust a fart!) that I control with Gas-X and recent probiotics. Still afraid to stop the gas-x, though...that was some baaaad gas! I have blood in the stool when I have gas. Mucus also seems to increase when I have gas. I didn't know night sweats were a symptom of CD, I get those occasionally. I thought it was just our cranky AC. Nausea and loss of appetite I attribute to 6MP.
I have the ability of single-minded determination and accurate project focu....Hey, look, a cat!
Crohn's and UC are pretty darn crappy, but if you can't laugh at yourself, you'll cry.

2001 Dx'd with UC. No remission. 5/2008 surgery, removal of 6" of left side colon. Dx changed to Crohn's. Remission for 8-9wks after surgery, symptoms returning after resuming 6MP.
