I weighed 165 for 20 years. Lost down to 20 with my chohns dx, but gained back to 165. Got on Remicade and have slowly gained to 188 pounds! It goes up every time I go to the doctor! I don't get it. I haven't changed my eating habits, I eat very sensibly (never fast food or junk), I run 25 miles per week, weight lift 4 days a week. I should be losing! Before chrohn's/remicade, the weight training/running combo always made weight melt off me.
OK, I'm gonna be 40 in two months, but surely that can't be the whole blame, can it?
Bad fissure Feb 2005, still have it January 2006. On Pentasa and Imuran 100mg. Some slight swelling and ulceration of terminal ileum. No other symptoms. Now on Remicade!
