I had a colon resection in May, golfed my first game a week ago Thursday. Friday went to the mountains for a week with horses, rode four days for four hours at a time. Cooked everything on an open fire. Ate things I haven't eaten in over a year: bacon, sausages, potato salad, coleslaw, brocccoli, asparagus, peanuts, pork chops, etc. Never had any D, cramps or gas.
Had minor problems right after surgery which I think was a result of adding too much fibre too quickly.
Off to Calgary today to babysit my grandson for two days then back to the mountains after the long weekend.
Take weekly methotrexate injections and am having a small bowel ultrasound in September but 'all is good' right now.

Oooh I'm jealous!! You go girl! Evidently the methotrexate is working well for you. Enjoy your time with your grandbaby. I am jealous about that too, my grandbabies live too far away:(

It's so nice to hear that someone is having "feeling good days".  We don't hear enough about those and it's nice to know that they are attainable.

I've been doing fairly well myself.  I've been better but I know well enough by now how to maintain by health when things start to get off kilter but it's not like it use to be before.

Good for you.  I hope you are able to enjoy many more days of feeling well.
