hey joy47 here just thought i would share i had a colonoscopy done today. I have crohns all thru my small and just at the edge of where the small and large meet. Well the doctor and i thought it might not be that good of news. But he was estatic when he told me it looked great it looked better than he has ever seen it. Ive had him for a doctor at least 15 years. He said the medicine is working. Im on humira 40mg every other week. he mentioned about a camera for my small bowell. Will see. I thought if any one is on humira this might make you feel alittle hope insight. I also stay away from fatty foods the best i can (Which at times idont do so well) I work out 4to5 days a week if im up to it . Ive just got rid of the unnessary stress that i had. I also stopped smoking ciggerates. I know since i quit i have less stress which surprised me. Go figure. Thats about it i just have to check out the camera thing anyone done that. If you have let me know about it i would appreciate it .Thanks :-)
