they wanted to take my bowel away. I declined.
They offered that to me as well.
I last flared in summer 2010 and high dose prednisone failed but resulted in a thrombosis when dehydrated. This summer should be my 2 year anniversary.
No symptoms and med-free.
I rely on no alcohol, no sodas, little fake sugar. Eggs,chicken, salmon, turmeric/curcumin, apple pectin and pure-green-protein and more recently enteric coated protein blend which is resulting in perfectly formed stools which is a nice addition to my once in the morning daily routine.
Good luck on keeping remission going.
