My journal of my battle with Crohns disease. I have had Crohn's diagnosed since September 2007. In that time I've been through two surgeries, two colonoscopies, and tons of good and bad times. I want to share my experiences with this disorder and hope to hear some feedback from time to time.

Feeling Better

Saturday, September 26, 2009
So, since my surgery, the pain when going to the restroom has decreased a ton.  I am able to actually move around after going instead of just laying down.

I am also eating a little more each day.  Prior to the surgery, I had no appetite what so ever.  I would usually skip breakfast and lunch, and ear something like a chicken breast for dinner.  Now, I have added another meal in during the day.

The bad part about eating more is that I go to the restroom more.  That sucks because each time I do, I have to take a shower and/or bath because of the surgical wound.  I have to keep it very clean.  That means I have to change my packing multiple times of day.  And, it's gross.  My incision in still draining a ton.

Another thing is that I really don't want to gain back the weight I lost over the last couple of month from being sick.  I was a little overweight, and could still afford to lost a little bit more.
