De-stressing helps too. I've found that stress exasperates the effects of Crohn's/ colitis symptoms. Also a temporary bland diet helps too. I know my response is late, but I hope it'll help whomever is reading it.
Since I choose to EAT right and DRINK right, I suppose you could say I LIVE right!

Hello! My husband just had surgery to remove his terminal illium and he doesn't respond well at all to opiates. This has left him with very limited pain control options. Normally he does Tylenol, since NSAIDs are a no go for Crohns patients, however, just Tylenol hasn't been enough. His surgeon said it would be okay to do the IV Motrin/Advil short term until his pain dies down. Now that we're home he has to take everything orally and he's been really concerned about taking the Advil. Anyone else have any suggestions or experiences?

I am resolute in creating a plan each week to include meals and workouts. I'm resolute in taking charge of ME, doing what I need to do to get fit and healthy.
I'm a renagade - against weak excuses, allowing set backs to become the "norm". Not happening. I'm also one who has problems with self-sabotage. No more. When I see change and success, I'll celebrate it and strive to move even closer to my goal.
