My surgeon called me today and officially told me that the radiologist report said "NO EVIDENCE OF ACTIVE CROHN'S DISEASE AT THIS TIME"!!!!! Woo Hoo!

I've already called Social Security about returning to work for 10-15 hours per week. I know that I have to take it slow......but I am sooooo excited to be getting back to a somewhat "normal" life:)

I've spoken with the office where I worked for 12 years before my diagnosis and they are ready to have me back for whatever time they can get me! I believe my first official day back will be June 1. They have let me come in and volunteer on days when I have felt well enough to do it. I will need some retraining (I'm a Medical Assistant) and things change so frequently in the medical field. I am so ready to get out of this freaking house!

Hope you are all having a good day:)
HUGS!
Mindy

Let's party!!!! If only we all could get together and celebrate!!!

Such good news for you, Mindy. Just don't over do it. That's a no no and something we're all guilty of when we start to feel better. I think going back to work is just what you need. I am so happy for you.

Lots of hugs!!!!!

Also, out of curiosity, what meds are you using now? And is your diet more normal? I know for a while, you were having trouble with just about everything.

mindyj1971 replied to hannahleigh89's response:
I am taking Pentasa 500 mg 2 capsules 2 times a day and am still trying to get off of the Prednisone. I'm down to 10 mg on that. My GI doc may want to start me on a biologic for prevention, but I don't see him until the end of July.

Food is still quite the issue for me. I still drink mostly BOOST....if I do eat, I have to take Phenergan with it:( There are only a handful of foods that don't make me nauseous....but it is a start;)

How are you doing?
Mindy

It's hard for me to believe that you're in remission if you're having so many symptoms.
