    Welcome to the club Jason.

    The cocktail above kept me in remission for two years so good luck with it. Hope you are not too fatigued or in pain.

      No one likes a grumble bum. Sorry that's my best Crohn's joke!

      I had no side effects.

      Has your consultant put you in touch with an IBD nurse?
