I replaced my toilet. The plumber brought a Toto brand toilet. I've never seen such an efficient toilet. It flushes inside of 5 seconds. I'm entertained as all get out!

Had to share this with folks that understand. :)

I replaced my toilet seat and was about as excited about that, as you sound about your new toilet haha. My old one had come loose and I was too ill to get out and get a new one, so half the time when I went to the toilet I ended up sliding off the toilet along with the seat lol. Was a luxury to sit down on a secure seat, and it has a soft closing mechanism yeah tongue smilewinkgrin
37yr old woman UK. Diagnosed with crohns in 95. Currently on 2400mg asacol, 100mg Azathioprine. Been on Remicade once which worked well for me, but they took me off it. Flared up again. Took Humira but it didn't seem to agree with me, but thinking it was now an infection rather than side effects from Humira. Now back on Remicade, had 3 infusions so far and no reactions as yet. Consultant wants me to have a colostomy bag fitted, I've refused and want to try as many options as possible. On Elemental 028 extra diet for 6 weeks.

Thats so funny vadreamer :) The things us Crohnies get excited about would make other people question our sanity.
I was excited to get a new TP roll holder - go figure - I guess it was something different to look at (Plus it held more rolls)

I was excited when my new TP holder would hold the much larger rolls. It is a pretty one too. US Chronies do get excited at stuff others would think we are crazy for. that is why you can come here and we understand your excitement.

I am happy for ya, sucks to have a junky toilet when you have CD!

I want one of those expensive models that washes and drys your bum when you are done. They are so expensive though!

I wonder if the toilet makers industry know how much Crohnies appreciate them!!  I bet they feel under appreciated.  tongue   That goes for the toilet paper companies too.  I like the idea for the "Crohnie's Own" brand.  It could include a wide range of products - from ultra soothing toilet paper, a whole line of wipes, pads, and clothing, and toilets (fully equiped with entertainment, TVs, computers -- was it Sniper who had the fully equiped bathroom??).

Now I must go and spend some quality time appreciating my toilet.  

Diagnosed with rectal Crohn's in early 2007.  Several peri-rectal abscesses and two fistulae with setons.  Allergic to Remicade and Humira.  Currently on 6MP, and vitamins D and B-12.

This is too funny. I have a serious phobia about running out of TP. I buy in major bulk even though it is just my husband and I at home! I dream of a padded toilet seat for those midnight runs (pun intended!)

Padded toilet seats ARE nice, until they breakdown and get cracks, nothing like being pinched on the cheeks by your toilet seat OUCH!!

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it! LOL :)
