just thought I'd take a minute to introduce myself. My name is Mel and I am 41 yrs old. I was diagnosed last year in Oct. by a colonoscopy. I am sure I have had Crohns for years, just not diagnosed. Mine is still pretty mild thank goodness. I am on Asacol 2 pills 3x a day. Seems to keep me out of flares so far. Although since July I have been facing a possible breast cancer issue and things have been pretty stressful. Keeping my fingers crossed.
My problem is this; I have NO appetite at all. I have lost around 30-35 pounds in the last 6 months or so. Not that I couldn't stand to loose it, but dang. I am now down to a size 8 and still losing. How do you get yourself to eat??????? I find myself hungry but nothing sounds good. If I fix something and take a bite and it isn't what I want I just can't force it down.
How do you gain an appetite?
