I have gotten pretty good over the years at holding the gas in until I can get to a restroom because, as someone's byline on here says, you should never trust a fart. I totally take this to heart after one too many accidents. The worst are the one's that sneak out the fistula... ain't no holding those in.
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, Glucosamine, D3, calcium, potassium, 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!
