Update on my journey with Chemo and Crohn's

I have had 5 rounds so far. Next round is in 2 weeks. For the moment, it seems that the chemical route is working. I have gained 20 lbs back. I lost almost 50 Nov/Dec. I am back to a healthy 115 and just this week have had less pain since last July.

It has been happening slowly and I didn't really even notice until one of my students today commented that "I was back"

I looped with the students this year so they got to know me and my style last year before I got sick. To hear this today made me feel great. I didn't even realize that I was different aside from pain/fatigue.

His comment today made me stop and think and then thank God for this upturn.

Also, thanks for all your well wishes and prayers.

You are blessed. Stay positive. Keep fightin'. God is good; and right, even when we may not understand.

Sorry to hear you have been ill. Glad to hear it is getting better. As for your pain and needed weight gain, may I make a suggestion? I did a research paper last semester on Medical Marijuana (MM), I would be happy to send you a copy of all my research, it stated that MM was found to help people with Crohn's disease, plus we all know it helps with food intake. I was amazed at how MM fights cancerous cells and leaves the healthy cells alone.

Keep the fight, all the best to you! Lil Sis went through that a few years ago, and she is living a happy healthy life now.

I think, either she hides it real well, or it has gone into remission from those meds. I hope the very same happens for you real soon.

When you say Chemo are you talking actual Chemo or Remicade(-like) drugs?

I have Crohn's and Remicade has thus far done it's job. That and a surgery to remove a stricture.
