    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    Sorry I haven't posted in awhile but with working part time and 3 kiddies 4 and under, time seems to go really fast. LOL
    I have a new GI now and I am doing great. I took part in a Remicade study last week (one time blood draw before my remicade and got paid $50) so hopefully something good will come of thta for people later on.
    I am not bleeding anymore and have no pain. I still go to the bathroom about 6-7 times per day but I can live with that. I still have weekly bowel accidents but I am on a Cortoid Foam now so hopefully that will stop soon too. Generally i feel good so I can't complain.
    The best news:: I get off Prednisone completely in another week and a half!!!!Party time for that!!!!!!LOL
    Hope everyone else is doing well.

    Hey, I've been neglecting this board lately too unfortunately.. Granted, I worked 14 hours of overtime just in the last week at the hospital here.. That's not even including the time I've spent working on the ambulance this week. But of course, ran myself down and ended up flaring up this week. I had a sinus infection a few weeks ago and the Dr put me on Cephalexin, which gives you diarrhea(like i really needed a drug to help me with that!) Anyway I started getting really bad headaches and then finally yesterday the poo hit the fan. Feeling a tiny bit better today, trying to struggle through work now. Pretty tough. Hope you're doing well though
