I am getting married today, which is a wonderful thing. However, I am taking 20mg of Prednisone, Nexium, Salofalk, and Cipro for a bladder infection, and so I am feeling a little fed up.

It appears that along with the Crohn's I have IBS too. My Crohn's flare up started in March and my GI was a little upset that I was still going ahead with the wedding, but rescheduling the wedding of 120 seemed just as stressful. Aside from a few Bridezilla moments ('roid rage induced I'm sure!) I have tried to be very zen about the whole thing.

Any ideas how I can control the IBS for the night so that I can eat the wonderful food and perhaps have a glass of wine without rushing out in the middle of the meal? I am taking Metamucil, which helps.

Dont let CD control this important occasion less you can think about it the better
To control it would be difficult but you never know you might find you could go few hours toilet free... i would eat moderate and would have maybe 1 glass of wine

Thanks everyone. It went beautifully. I stuck to a few sips of wine and tastes of all the food. I avoided the chocolate cake!! I am now wondering how to photoshop the pictures of me with the prednisone moon face etc!! Oh, well, at least I am now married to a wonderful man who loves me anyway!

That is wonderful writermum! As to photo shop, do you have long hair? Or was your veil in front of your shoulders? I usually use a darker blush or you can combine the colors on photoshop to do this (on the sucked in part of the face when you make a fish face) and my long hair to cover up the cubby cheeks. I have some curl so it helps.
