I lost about 50lbs over two years and then put most of it back on in two months following surgery.

They had me taking Ensure shakes and Complan in the month before surgery and I did gain a bit back as well as feeling a bit less feeble so if you can stomach those it could be worth a try. I wish they'd told me that six months earlier.
Diagnosed May 2014
20cm Terminal Ileum and Ileocaecal resection July 2014
125mg Azathioprine

This has been my battle. We are still trying to find the right meds and just when I think I'm able to start gaining some weight a flare comes on and takes away what little I've gained.


Entocort , Prednisone, Pentasa, ,Protonix, Xifaxan

Lots of learning.

Lots of praying.....

I lost 35lbs in the last year
45 if you calculate that I gained 10lbs during the spring before to lose everything in the following months

Now that I had surgery, I'm working hard to get some lbs back
