Surgery induced Remission, Year and a few months still healthy

I will make it more extensive later on...

Jan '10 - Didn't have the big D but just intense pain and more and more weight loss.

Feb '10 DX CD - Tried different drugs but didn't work

Mar - April '10 - In and out of the hospital due to blockages

April '10 - Surgery to removed inflamed section around and including ileocecal valve. Took 2 months to gain 50 LBS to get back to healthy due to being extremely underweight. Started working again, going to the gym, just enjoying life.

June '10 - G.I. puts me on 200 mg Aza to keep me in remission due to how severe it got so fast in the past.

Current:Aug'11 - Still feel amazing, gained 15 LBS of muscle since going to the gym, can't tell I was ever sick except for the scar on my abdomen. Just certain foods which include a lot of MSG cause minor temporary bowel movement pains due to I have no idea what I'm guessing just all the processed shit that's in bad food.

Hey guys just checking in quickly. I'm still doing great no signs of Crohn's now 2 years after my surgery. Aza is still working well as a remission drug. I'm still working out regularly and am up to 170 lbs!!!! Scary to think 2 years ago I was down to 100 lbs... I think I got a pic of my progress so far somewhere.


Oh well take care guys, I hope everyone the best of luck with everything. I won't ever forget this wonderful place of information and community!!
