On 3 separate occasions I have went for a checkup or went to the emergency room for something else and was told that I had a UTI. Didn't have any symptoms whatsoever. My Dr told me that when you have a lot of D, may not have wiped completely or got it all, the bacteria can be in your underwear and kind of migrate in that direction.
Dx'd w/ Crohn's in 1979 at age 13. Bad flare 2008 but no health insurance so I dealt with it. Colonoscopy in July 2009 caused a perforated colon, emergency bowel resection. 2 fistula's, perianal and perivaginal.

Humira, probiotic, a multivitamin, calcium, magnesium, zinc, and fish oil. I also take Tramadol 50 mg and Klonopin (for anxiety) as needed.

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance!
