I’m going to rock this boat today and talk about my experience with Crohn’s disease. Diagnosed in March 1996. First small bowel resection in June 1996- they took my appendix, my ileocecal valve, 10 inches of my ileum and a few diffuse repairs of my small intestines, elsewhere.  NG tube, morphine, prednisone (IV). Only on Pentasa after this surgery. I was told “food doesn’t matter”. After 2 months started having symptoms again.  November 1999, 2nd small bowel resection, they took 18 inches with one other repair. My MD was medically aggressive, I was on Pentasa, flagyl, levaquin, Prevacid- a ton of additional meds (can’t remember names) and in 2002 started Remicade. 1st infusion felt like supergirl, cape and all. 2nd infusion- allergic reaction- every infusion was a nightmare after that- steroids 3 days before and during and benedryl and fennergen during. Next day I had to take off of work. I did Remicade for 2 years until the last infusion was an anaphylactic reaction-almost landed in the ER.  2004, changed my diet, I had a systemic Candida overgrowth and no microbiome 😩 I detoxed for about 2 months- wow 😮 during this period I took it upon myself to wean myself off of my medications (all 10 of them). 💪🏻 After two months of the worst detox ever, I woke up one morning and felt like “ME” again, before this 12 year nightmare (I suffered for years before diagnosis). Things were good for a bit, but it was hard to stay on point due to my emotional eating disorder. I struggled sticking with my diet. Big life change in 2006 & 2007. Very stressed, denial and 97 pounds! 2008 was my last small bowel resection, the worst a ton of complications, but as I was sitting in the hospital I said to myself, “is this the person you want to be? In and out of hospitals, missing life, being the sick one”? That day I made a promise to myself to grow up, take control of myself and not be a victim of this disease. The surgeon wanted me on a small bowel transplant list, I was like, no freaking way! I have never looked back. No more symptoms- no more meds- no more pain. No more Crohn’s.... It is possible to overcome this. #ibdawareness #crohns #crohnsdisease #healthcoach
