I too had half of my large intestines removed exactly one year ago tomorrow. I still have a mix of normal bms and "d". about
half and half. Anyway, I also have achy joints but my GI doesn't think it's Crohn's related because I don't have swelling or heat on them. Just lots of pain. My PCP took x-rays and says I do have inflammation(arthritis). My gut tells me it is Crohn's related but who knows.
