    I am sure you are not alone and that after the weekend, when it is always quieter here, someone will answer you.

    I suffer from diverticlosis and have found that SW suits me so well.............not one attack in over a year.................thank you SW !!!

    Ooh - a response :bliss:

    Thank you x

    I've officially had Crohns for 6 years but unofficially longer (it was missdiagnosed for years!)

    I am managing ok with the superfree so far (5 weeks in) but that was what I was worried about. I can't handle berries though - they really are Super Speedy with me!!!!! I have cut bread out as I prefer cereal as my HEB and I think that helps too.

    I am lucky to not have many flare ups since I had my resection 6 years ago but am taking Quertran daily to slow "things" down!

    Glad to find a fellow Crohnie on here :)

    unfortunately questran did not work, still not slow about 4 times a day lol, i had a resection 14 years ago, had it unofficially 18 years (since 17 gulp!!!) diagnosed 1998. I take it as it comes to be honest. i cant handle most raw veg or salad.... coming off slowly but surely....
    i have colonoscopy again on tuesday what fun!!!! where about in essex are you? i am originally from gidea park but live up in wakefield now.

    Years ago when I did SW the first time round, I used to go with a friend of mine who had Crohns. She lost weight really well and didn't have any problems as such. She did mainly green days as she was a vegetarian and EE hadn't been invented at that time!

    Good luck with the weight loss and managing your Crohns through it! :)

    I'm finding it's made my Crohns better too. I are a lot of veg before so that was ok but it's the fruit I have to be careful with.
