hi all, hope you are all feeling well tonight. I was diagnosed with Crohns, after 18 months of testiing, in March . After 6 weeks of azathioprine it was decided I should be given pentasa [mesalazine]. Since then. I find that I am no longer loose or have to run to the loo. My problem is the opposite. My stools are a bit hard and I always have at least a little pain which is lessened after a bowel movement.. I have sometimes had to take a dose of lactulose to induce the bowel movement which I do not like doing in case this is giving a wrong reading.
a second question I have. Everyone talks of flare ups. I am never totally pain free. I don't like to moan I am grateful I am not in the pain I was in before being diagnosed but is a little pain normal for us crohnies
