Hey man try milk fermented kefir will sort you right out, I've got Crohns and it really helped.

Ive been eating yogurt alot to help create helpful bacteria in my intestine. Thanks for the advice tho i appreciate it.

i have crohn's disease too.
just got out of the hospital 2 months ago.
talk to me, /b/ro

Sup dude. Im assuming you were on Remicade?
>>
>>718528683
i was a couple years ago. stopped because it didnt do shit except make my doctor rich

i've had this shit since 2004, so i've experienced just about everything to do with it

Does your dick work?
>>
>>718528899
including ED?
>>
>>718528754
I feel. I just started my Remicade today. Im also on Imuran for a year. Colonocopy showed 5 ulcers in my small intestine so they wanted to hit me hard to clear up my inside quick.
>>
>>718528939
yeah, but i've got a fistula that sends shit and undigested food through it when i pee
>>
My father used to have crohns. Used to have to go to the hospital with him when he got his shit checked out. Ever since he started smoking weed he hasn't had problems. Went to get a colonoscopy and they said they didn't see anything crohns related. Try it out for a while.
>>
>>718528939
Yes my dick works. Unfortunately I have 3 buttholes at the moment so I have to wear adult diapers, which isnt the most attractive thing for women.
>>
>>718528899
can u just catch crohns? what, did you just shit out your intestines?
>>
>>718528994
not ED specifically, but it's not as potent as it used to be. sometimes i lose my erection during sex, but it's not all bad, girls usually blame themselves and think they're not pretty enough
>>
>>718529002
remicade was a joke in my case
no more effective than asacol
like taking a sugar pill

Crohns is hereditary

i just got out of the hospital, they cut me open behind my ballsack to drain an abcess. it's been 2 months, still draining. scared it's just what my life is gonna be now. i never leave the apartment. i rarely get out of bed. thing drips and drains constantly
>>
>>718529248
it's hereditary, but it's environmentally triggered. so, you have the lloaded gun in your system from your genes, then you eat a fucked up diet or something and boom, welcome to a fucked up rest of your life
>>
>>718529642
that's a blessing. prayers for you. it's a fucked up disease. if you're at remicade level you already know that though...
>>
>>718529783
Dont worry. You will be alright. They drained one on me in that exact area the size of a baseball. I had a drain in and my dirty college roommate gave me an infection. 5 months later still draining but I work and go to school. Its humiliating for awhile but you get used to it.
>>
>>718526987
how much intestine do you have left?
>>
>>718530042
All of it. I had the option of getting a portion cut out, but I went with medicine instead of surgery. Already had 3 operations for this bullshit.
>>
>>718526987
Were you ever misdiagnosed as having ulcerative colitis?
>>
>>718530042
notOP, but i still have all mine.
my intestine is mangled for about 6 inches on the small side of the ICV valve, but they've never been able to get my inflammation under control enough to discuss surgical options.
>>
>>718530001
Thank you man. Means alot. Fuck I've never recieved so much support like this before. 4chan aint all bad after all.

You're going to die shitting yourself earlier than you would if you ate proper foods.
>>
>>718530203
i went totally undiagnosed from 2004-2012.
went to sooooo many quack ass doctors and all they'd ever say is, "we don't know what it is, maybe it's crohn's, we don't know."
finally went to decent doctor in 2012 and he said fuck yeah you've got crohn's, you've got a pretty fucking serious case of it too.
>>
>>718530138

good you still have yours. My aunt had the last part of her large intestine and rectum removed.

Tbh I've eaten healthy my entire life. It was the stress of college that flared it up. My first operation was the day before move in day to my dorm. You can imagine how fun it was to carry a mini fridge up 4 flights of stairs with a tube in your ass.

humira's really similar to remicade. same family. remicade didn't do shit for me, pretty sure humira's what they're trying next, don't remember what the doc said, i gotta go back next week
>>
>>718530513
I see what you did there.
>>
>>718526987
How did you develop it?
>>
>>718526987
Hey OP. Sorry to hear about your case. I've been struggling with severe irritable bowel syndrome for 5 years now. I wasn't able to eat or drink anything without then having explosive diarrhea. So I simply took pepto bismal twice a day everyday for two years while I was in uni. After graduation I decided I needed to try and do something. Went to two family docs and did blood tests. Everything fine..

Then went to a private practise naturopathic doctor. She gave me pro biotics and some anti microbial stuff. Also got tested for food allergy which came back with me being allergic to 280 diff foods. Her theory was that my intestines were so inflamed they weren't profucing eymzymes anymore.

Skip ahead to today. I still take probiotics everyday as well as slippery elm to hell coat intestines and reduce inflammation. I only have stomach problems about every 1 in 10 times of eating. Which is better than the 10/10 it used to be.

Anyways I keep asking my family doc to do a colonoscopy and he refuses to do it.


Question for you, what warning signs should i be looking for to know if its chroans or not. I dont have any blood in stool. And no undigested food.
>>
>>718531626
You have to adopt a sense of humor when you get Crohn's. Otherwise you are depressed 24/7.
>>
>>718531577
>Im annoumous so im guna be an asshole on the interenet!

ur edgy m8
>>
>>718531748
a sense of humor or a deep and true apathy
>>
>>718531724
Crohns is really tricky to detect externally. If you are having inflammation due to certain foods, I would seriously get a colonoscopy. Find a doctor who will do it. You do not wanna prolong it. I had a pelvic mri, colonoscopy, and endonoscopy before they confirmed it as crohns.
>>
>>718531882
True
>>
>>718526987
my father has it. 50 old and still can care for himself. Though not quite well enough to hold a job.
>>
>>718531577
you shouldn't until you get it.
which there's a good chance you will... you're white (right?) male? you eat a modern grocery store diet? yeah, you are the demographic. i hope you don't get it, m8.
>>
>>718531974
I work at a Best Buy and I am running to the bathroom every 30 minutes or so. It just kinda falls out and that is my main fear at the moment.
>>
>>718531724
if you have crohn's your blood test should come bac with some strange readings saying that you have "active disease". i don't know the medical vocab, so i can't tell you which ones, but that's what they always tell me after my blood tests...
>>
>>718532055
This man speaks the truth. I am a dickhead to most people, but I could never wish this upon anyone. Im serious, it has made me wanna commit suicide on multiple occasions. You feel useless once you realize you have no energy to leave your bed and all you do is shit yourself and stay drugged up 24/7
>>
>>718526987
I got gastroparesis if that helps anon
>>
>>718532309
Any sort of G.I. problems are welcome here. Crohns is the tip of the iceberg tbh
>>
>>718532084
it's a slow process learning how to change your diet to avoid trigger foods. i've been doing it over 10 years and am still making adjustments. 2008 was the hardest year of my life. i had no idea what i was doing, diet wise. Life-wise, i was dying.
>>
>>718531201
Hang in there. My mom is pushing 60 and although she has a limited diet and shits a lot she is still active. My worry is I'll pass it to my kids...
>>
>>718532394
Its really hard to manage. Especially when you are going to college and the only thing to eat near you is a taco bell and pizza hut. I starve half of the time just so i dont explode
>>
>>718532476
No worries, m8. The machines will take over and kill your children before they have to worry about Crohn's. Skynet and all that.
>>
>>718532476
I wouldnt worry about the passing to your children. Even if you do, just raise them in a healthy lifestyle. They should be good if they stay in shape and eat right.
>>
>>718526987
Do you shit your pants often in public?
>>
>>718532531
i eat a lot of white bread and scrambled eggs. avoid as much fiber as you can. avoid especially "residue". indigestibles like bean skins, seeds, fruit and veggie matter. I won't even eat refried beans without running them through a blender first.
>>
>>718532742
No. I just constantly drain. When I left from my colonscopy, I went to chick fil a and shit my pants while ordering. All i wanted was my damn nuggies and my ass erupted in line.
>>
>>718532742
not often, but it has happened
>>
>>718532742
i piss myself way more often. something to do with the fistulas, i suppose. my emergencies are almost always number 1 instead of 2. i think that's a blessing, but i'm not sure....

No prob. Also don't stress about it. Thats exactly what flares it up.
>>
>>718529036
Holy shit for real? Wouldn't that give you a massive urinary tract infection?

Is it possible to have a fistula or bad ulcer and not realize it?
>>
>>718533010
i never ever post my pics on /b/, but you inspire me
>>
>>718526987
So is crohns like peeing out your ass every 10 minutes? Do you smell like shit all day?
>>
>>718533010
I haven't being following and you look kinda androgynous. care to clarify?
>>
>>718526987
Do you have a girl friend? Do you people with crohns have scat fetishes?
>>
>>718533326
No not at all. Its not necessarily diarrhea, just soft loose stool. I bleed a lil because surgery holes. I don't smell because diaper blocks scent from drainage. I very rarely have an accident in public. Colognr always does the trick
>>
>>718533276
when it first broke through i did have a bad UTI. they cleared up the UTI with antibiotics and it never came back. the fistula has never gone away though.

and you can definitely have a fistula without knowing it if it doesn't connect to the outside. you'll know something's wrong becausse pain, but you won't necessarily know what. before mine broke all the way through i was in pain for months while it slowly ate its way through my insides. had no idea what was going on, thought i was dying.
>>
>>718533382
Nah im a dude. Just always looked young. Im 19

>>718533487

>>
>>718533283
Noice man. Stay strong
>>
>>718533487
what? dude your fetishes and your medical conditions aren't connected. what planet do you live on?
i'm sure some people with crohn's happen to have fetishes, but not because they have crohn's... because they're fucking weird, /b/ro
>>
>>718533780
No bro they are connected.
>>
>>718533949
they're connected exactly as strongly as my dick is connected to your lips.

Fuck. I'm never gonna eat difficult to digest food again. This thread has scared me straight. My family has a history of bowel problems and my dad and grandpa both have crohn's. I'm irish/scottish celtic. I try to stick to their ancestral diet which is basically fermented diary, oats, soup, and white meat.

How likely are doctors to give a false negative for crohn's after a colonoscopy?

ulcerative colitis is way easier to diagnose with colonoscpoies than crohn's. crohn's is usaually more of a small intestine problem.

The placebo effect has anti-inflamatory properties and is more effective than drugs for many conditions, the weed may trigger it. Also weed does have anti-inflammatory properties. The placebo effect is different than just positive attitude. Basically you need to believe down to a subconscious level you are being given a cure and it will trigger your body to release chemicals that decrease inflamation and other things. It sounds like hoodoo but it's being given credit by science, there's a good article in national geographic. Basically religion/bullshit can heal if you have faith.

if they give you the option, do NOT do the partially conscious procedure.

I could see why weed helps with crohn's. If you take a giant dab, it instantly makes you feel like you have to fart / poop and always relieves the stomach whenever you use it.

I just fart a lot, period, no matter what I eat, and even when I don't!

>>718536909
Yes
>>
>>718526987
Where is it? I have ileocolic with a perianal fistula and 2 strictures.
>>
>>718537583
I have Chron's too but I guess I'm luckier than you as my symptoms don't include looking like a fucking retarded faggot.

joe rogan has crohns disease
>>
>>718537696
Yeah, but there's an unimaginable scope of farting after an exam compared to regular life..
>>
>>718537734
Had an abcess on my taint. Got it drained, drain tube amd sutures got infected and turned into fistula. I have two tracts that merge into one so they drain from my inside.

>>718537817
Mine drains outside and formed without draining. Cutting seton did nothing. Im resistant to Remicade and Humira. Had to spend a few weeks off any immunosuppressants due to a dental abcess. Yes, it is a full fistula and it does capture feces.
>>
>>718537583
i'm jealous of your phone
>>
>>718537983
Damn, im sorry bro. My abcess was small at first but grew to size of about a baseball. Was too deep to lance so had to get sedated for drainage.
>>
>>718538048
Its just an s6 edge its no fancy thing
>>
>>718537542
yeah, and you shit lube. and you're still shitting out the bowel cleanser that you drank the whole previous day (honestly drinking that golite shit is worse than the procedure). and you're starving.

>>718538064
Went under 3 times for first seton, attempt at a mesh plug, then second seton. Im happy that I dont need surgery yet.
>>
>>718537699
tits or gtfo, mom
>>
>>718538180
Unfortumately the way to treat crohns is to leave wounds open, so im gonna have a seton in for atleast 3 more months

Mine just fell out. Im about to start 6 weeks of 15 mg Methotrexate and prednisone again so I can qualify for a new drug. Not sure what its called but its not meant for fistulas. Hope you get some use out of yours. Though be aware of the conflict between Remicade and Imuran. Apparently an increase of risk in T-cell lymphomas in particularly young adult males. Only reason I stopped the Imuran.
>>
>>718538431
Why in gods name would i ever do anal.

Fellow crohnie here. Phones about to die though, this topic was a good read however, glad Im not alone. Sucks I consider myself a good looking, smart guy for the most part but this shit just holds you back in so many ways. Aka jobs and relationships.

OP here. Remistart?
>>
>>718529437
Not that anon, but no one in my family on either side has it, I'm the first one to start it I guess
>>
>>718538904
i paid $100 per infusion, insurance covered the rest. remistart was supposed to knock it down to $50 per infusion, but those lying fags never paid a dime.
>>
>>718539035
It can be dormant in like 100 generations and pop up in one generation for no reason whatsoever.
>>
>>718529642
It's worked for me anon. About the only thing that did. Humara is my last resort but I've been going strong on remicade. Except I can't go 8 weeks like everyone else, I'm on a short leash of just 5 weeks. And by that 5th week I'm ready to get another dose no doubt
>>
>>718526987
just saw a documentary about how good was feeling a guy with Crohn's when he decided to smoke weed to reduce pain.

do you smoke weed?
>>
>>718530042
Not op but I still have all mine, opted for medicine instead of surgery. Buut I did just have my gallbladder removed in June
>>
>>718538419
yes
>>
>>718539209
Ive only smoked twice in my life, both recently. Its gonna sound gay but my mother is very against it. My dad however is on the fence, so i think i could sway him. My parents have done alot for me and im not trying to be an asshole to them by doing stuff that they wouldnt approve of.
>>
>>718539209
dude, you have been baked this entire thread. you must think only a few minutes have gone by, but it's been 2.5 hours and you keep coming back with the weed shit....
>>
>>718539193
Apparently Remicade works really quick from what ive heard
>>
>>718539396
i was on it a year and my doc kept saying, "give it time"
>>
>>718539440
Some people have different reactions. Youd think modern medicine would be efficient.
>>
>>718539520
there's no such thing as modern medicine when it comes to Crohn's. Doctors are in the dark ages with this disease. They honestly are just fumbling around tryin to figure things out.

Crohn's disease has been proven to be a psychological deficiency or just an all-out fraud. It doesn't exist except in the minds of the insane or those defrauding the government.
Seriously, I hope you lying fucks get a REAL terminal disease.

yeah, i'm personally a little butthurt. kind of a fucked up way to say it, but that's the way it is. why am i upset? because NOTHING fucking works!

>>718540582
OP again. Take it easy man. Something will work for you. You just gotta be patient. Yea i know some people can be annoying about pot, but the dude has a point. It can alleviate some pain and help you get weight back. Direct treatment is where you wanna look first though.
>>
>>718540582
I'm really sorry dude, I guess it's not as stable as a chemical formula. The guy in the documentary was convicing tho. Maybe your weed was poor quality...

Look for fermented diary that doesn't have many ingredients, just milk and bacterial culture. Buttermilk is usually pretty good. Cheese is not probiotic usually. The most potent probiotic is unpastuerized saurkraut but it's also cabbage which may not agree with you. It's good to eat probiotics with brown bread which will carry it through your digestive system, most probiotics get killed by your stomach

Sorry, I just trigger really easy. It's been a long time and I've been at my wit's end for longer than i can remember. I don't usually even talk about it because I'm on the edge pssychologically on that topic. If I don't think about it, I'm a cool, normal guy. I get a little worked up when i disscuss it though. My bad. Sorries for real.
>>
>>718540901
I mean its not a bad way to unwind and just forget about all the bullshit. I have oxycodone and percocet which i use to sleep, but weed seems like a better alternative. If i wasnt paranoid, id do it more often. You definitely eat more when high.

Can't remember how long it took for it to work for me because I've been on it for so long. But I don't think it took long initially. Only reason I say that is because I didn't have long, it had to work. I was down to 68lbs. Soooo yea, it worked fairly quick

Hope you can find something that works for you anon. I would be dead at 8 weeks. I had to go 6 weeks this time because if the holidays and the offices weren't open on my 5th week.

She's gotten rid of everything you can get rid of but still has complications like crazy, she's in the hospital on and off throughout the years. And she'll spend months in there, like 2-4 months at a time. I'll visit her every now and then, I've been there

Don't do it, I did it for 4 months, I'll never forget. Imagine being hungry the whole time but your body won't die. It was torture, and getting off of it takes forever too.

She's a mess, but her spirits are really high. Honestly surprised she's survived so long. And she may very well have full on crohns, I'm not sure. But apparently doctors aren't either. I feel like at this point it's just one big guessing game, just like the anon said earlier.
