Its been along time since I was able to join you guys on here I did miss you. I have had crohns for so long got it at 22 am 55 now it finally took its toll last few years, I have tried everything out there even Rhemakaid which I had an allergic reaction to and now my joints are shot I was put on flagl for a abcess and now I have terrible neuropathy, always had RA in shoulders, Take pills for panic attacks and anxiety, depression, went from 205 down to 128 when my gastro asked why I was starving myself I simply said Im not I just drink my food cause it hurts to much to eat. well he said I needed to have surgery but nobody wanted to do the surgery until I was on my death bed. It took a few months more and family talk me into going for a second opinion and thats when my life changed. I ended up at froedert hospital in Milw. with super Drs. and Nurses that did the surgery put the bag on me and are still taking very good care of me and the surgery was in Dec. but I am still on TPN till I am strong enough, I have gain 30 pds back,. OH and they gave me a barbie butt, and I have no pain in my stomach or butt and I can pretty much eat what I want except gasy foods. I am off alot of my drugs and I feel better I think drugs cause alot of problems, now I will start to deal with all the side effects meaning the rest of my body.sorry so long but just get carried away.

Take Care and God Bless, Daffy
