Those green beans were soooo good last night!  Now I'm sitting here at work in pain and bloated.  You'd think after 27+ years with this DD I'd learn.....

Don't beat yourself up too much, we all do it. I took a chance with just a little bit of corn recently and paid for it for about 3 days. I consider it a reminder that no matter how good that corn looks, don't eat it.

I do that at least once a week. I usually feel crappy for at least one day a week anyway, might as well enjoy food before it happens.

I thnk we learn, I just think we don't remember. I am going to blame my age for forgetting the pain I would be in after too much vodka the other week
Dx'd '90 (emergency rupture), symptoms ignored long before that, '03 fistulas and bad flagyl reactions, B12 weekly, Pentasa [until I surrender to the bigger meds]

Do you have the same result if you cook them soft? My hubby steams me green beans - but he cooks them for at least 20 minutes so they are limp. Still yummy (since they were steamed they don't get overcooked and gross) but no pain.

I don't think of it as not learning, I think of it as me being stubborn. Sometimes, even during a flare like I'm in now, I'll eat something knowing it'll cause pain. I figure if everything causes nausea and pain, I might as well enjoy the food!

Thanks, the pain is subsiding but it's definitely from the green beans. DH put them in a veggie basket on the grill --- soo yummy! I guess it's soft food for a couple of days.

Habs -- I love the "age" excuse! That's one I'll use on DH.

Fitzy -- I usually cook them thoroughly but I just couldn't resist fresh beans.

Sometimes I still tests foods to see if they still bother me or not. Sometimes I remember why I stopped eating them and other times I find that I can now handle them. There are a few things that I just know will kill me that are obvious but this disease is so unpredictable. Some may have read my taco bell dog post last week to understand more what I am referring to but we all give into our temptations sometimes. Our bodies and intestines are constantly changing so don't beat yourself up over this one.

I find that with certain foods, not corn or the 'obvious' offenders, that its something like 7 out of 10 times I can handle something. How can I avoid all foods if I can handle it more than half the time. My DH will get a little peeved at me when he sees me eating something that upsets my tummy, but I just remind him that he could never give up his favorite foods for the rest of his life and never have them again! It seems to be a matter of not too much and not to many offenders in one day.

CD 20 years officially, 30 unofficially. 3 resections '93, '95 '97
Managing with strict low residue diet, keeping symptoms to a minimum. All test show small amount of ulceration, still have occasional blockages. But still have a great time with my 2 daughters and husband!

Ice cream cake at my daughter's birthday party last weekend.. unfortunately, there was a lot left over and I've indulged a couple of times... not the best move since it has all the ingredients that are out to get me :)

We don't learn.  I do the same thing with many of the things I eat.  I love food and don't want to give up anything so for the most part, I don't.  I just live with the consequences later and when I'm sitting on the toilet feeling as miserable as I can and "throwing up" out of my butt I just tell myself, "this too shall pass".  And it does!

Crohn's Disease. 
Diagnosed 13+ years ago. 
Been in remission for short periods of time but each time I come out of remission my disease seems to have spread.  No longer isolated in my ileum, now from stomach down to rectum. 
Current Medications for the Crohns:  Humera 40mg injections every other week, Imuran 150mg, 3xday, Hyomax, Welchol 625mg, Flagyl 250mg, 3xday, Calcium, Acidophilus & Potassium
Previous Medications I've been on:  Asocal, Pentasa, Cipro, Prednisone & Entocort
