Hi there! i am new here but have been lurking and already have learned alot and gained some perspective on my particular case of CD. I was diagnosed in 2007 and have flares off and on. I am currently on Lialda and 6MP which seem to be doing an OK job. Stress really plays a part in my flares and as a working mother of two, haven't found a great way to reduce that!
I do have one question. Since I find my self "sitting" and "going" often, I seem to have developed hemorrhoids. I am not sure if they are external or internal but I wouldn't be surprised if they were both. I really don't want to have surgery to remove them but they are getting VERY VERY bothersome! Does anyone else suffer from these and if so, have you found anything other than surgery that helps?
Thanks for any insight you may have and thanks for your candid posts. I am thrilled to have stumbled upon this site.
