Me and my mom were talking about Christmas and she asked what I really wanted. My answer....A NEW BUTT! The past year has been awful with peri-anal disease and if there were seriously one thing that I could have that would be it. I mean, how nice would it be to wake Christmas morning with a completely new rear-end! Haha..I know this sounds silly but it would really be the best Christmas EVER!
So that's what I REALLY want, what do all of you really want this Christmas?

What does this gal want for Christmas? to be able to eat a food that I really love and not feel like I blow-up with gas in the gut! or, maybe to have a glass of wine/cocktail and not feel like my esophagus is on fire hahaha!

But, seriously, peace to everyone, happiness and good health, would also be great!

I can live with the CD. The way I fiqure it, everyone has some burden in life. I grew up with a mother who had CD, so I understand it and always knew that you could have a good life with a few modifications. So CD, while it does impact my life, I'll accept. What I would like, is to do away with the other stuff. Like not being able to get rid of a sinus infection because of my compromised immune system.

CD 19 years offically, 29 unofficially. 3 resections '93, '95 '97
Symptoms constantly but all tests show only minor ulcerations. Currently having multiple episodes of gastritis with no known cause.

Prednisone, 6MP,Prevacid, B12 shots, Bentyl, Xifaxan.....

:-)  What do I want for Christmas? To actually be able to eat a holiday meal (or any meal for that matter) without the cramps and diarrhea...to feel "normal" like any other person after a big meal...tired but satisfied...not miserable like me. Please Santa...bring me what I want for Christmas this year-I've been a good girl!

Zanne, have you tried sinu cleanse? I use a neti pot. Google it for more info. I get chronic sinus infections, esp now with imuran, i use this and within a week, I'm all better. I saw it on Oprah-Dr Oz recommended it.

Oh yeah...as apalaura said, the Neti pot is fabulous! We've been using it for almost a year now as a preventative, but it's also great when you're in the midst of an infection or just a cold. Even mainstream ENT docs are now recommending this! My sister-in-law who has had allergies and sinus issues her entire life says she's now addicted to her pot!

Again, hope you feel better real soon!

Grateful for everyone's help here!

I would love to actually begin to heal wnad not need another surgery for Christmas. I want to get better so that my husband and I can start a family.

As for your sinuses my mom uses the neti pot, I have the saline nose spray from the local drug store. In addition when I know I will be in a place with many germs...basically when I leave the house...I use neosporin and place it inside my nostrils. In addition to keeping your sinuses from drying out with all that heal in the houses at this time of year I figure the reason it has helped me is because when the germs come into contact with the neosporin it kills the germs since the ointment has antibiotics in it. I also use this when I start getting those cuts in my nostrils...luckily with me doing the neosporin thing I have not had a cut in my nose for a while or a sinus infection.

Also to help with the dryness in the air from heat you can use that product I think it is called air. You can place it inside the nostrils...I sneezed when I used it that way, or you can place it around the edges of the nostrils so when you breath it helps to moisurize the air going in.

Merry Christmas everyone......

I'd like to have my energy level back or at least 3/4 of it. You don't realize how much you used to have until it gets taken away from you. All this holiday hustle and bustle is wearing me out! LOL
