I'm sorry I haven't been on in a while, but I've been feeling great. I don't know what it was but this is the best I've felt in years probably the best I've felt since being diagnosed. I'm taking 4 Asacol / day, Questran!!!, and no Protonix. The only addition is Pepcid complete which is not working that well. I now have normal BM's daily which I can't remember the last time that has happened. I've been so busy living life and not worrying about where is the bathroom and being to tired to do anything. I thought I should post and tell ya that I'm still kicking and screaming.
Thanks all and I hope you are all well.

It took me about 6 mos or so after my last resection to feel like I was finally back on the right track. Glad to hear you are doing so well. Don't be a stranger.
