Thanks for the replies,
Nanners, I have read many times that you went med free for 20 years and wouldn't do it again. I have no intention of not taking some medication but I just think there must be some that get away with it. I'm sure you have your meds figured out at his point but was wondering if there are a lot of Crohn's meds that would help with your arthritis as well? And congratulations on becoming a Forum Moderator.
As far as doctors predicting how long before a resection, with the unpredictability of this disease, don't know how thay can ever say that.
Also, I still feel pain/discomfort in the area of the reconnect and my last one was in the late 80's. I think adhesions build up at the site and make the area pull and that adds to the discomfort.
Good news is you can survive and learn to live "around" it. just don't let the disease "have" you.
