My Story:
I had my first back surgery in April 1986. It kept me from becoming paralyzed but didn't reduce my pain. In 1989 I finally accepted my disability (after much trauma).

In April 2006 I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease. April does not seem to be my best month.

I am currently taking Pentasa and Entocort EC along with Morphine and several PRN meds for pain.

In the non-prescription category I take probiotics, Prilosec, multivitamin, extra: Calcium, D3, Omega-3, B complex, Potassium, and L-Lysine. All on PCP orders.
