    Im Back With Some Bad News :(


    I know this doesnt belong here, but this is where i spend most of my time on here and feel as though my friends would more likely read it here than anywhere else.

    Well as some of u know (and of course some of u dont), i have Crohn's disease which ive had since i was 13. Just this past year i have fell into a huge hole and have had the worst "flares" of my life.

    Just this past Wedensday, my parents and i decided to go through with surgery and have a small bowel resection. The surgeons cut out the bad/dead/diseased part of the intestine and connect healthy ends.

    The surgery was a succes and i am now recovering. I feel as though this was the best move i could have made because medicine just wasnt working anymore and i couldnt live the way i was.



    I have lost all gains that i worked my ass off for for the past 4 years and probably weigh around 150lbs now with no chance of hitting the gym for a couple months.

    With such supportive friends and family, especially my loving girlfriend, i am hoping that i wont slip into any kind of depression.

    I will still be on here as much as possible, not like i can DO anything else really lol, and still want to share the knowledge i have and learn everything i possibly can from everyone on here.


    Sorry for the long read and the post in the wrong section guys!!....painkillers have me a little loopy ......

    Sorry to hear about that man. Don't feel too bad about the gains you've lost, you'll be able to gain it back pretty easily when your muscle memory kicks in.

    Muscle memory bro, you'll be back. Just go to a new gym when you do get back and people will be amazed by your rapid progress.

    Take care.

    Hey Nos keep your head up it's for the best. I got really sick about 9 years ago and ended up in the hospital. After many tests and days of hell I was diagnosed with Crohns too. I changed my diet & took the recommended meds and I haven't had one flare up since. The last time I was tested the doc said there were no signs that it still even existed - even though they typically say it doesn't go away itself. It sounds to me like you had the best possible thing happen with the surgery. Hang in there bro & be patient because from here on out everything in life will only get better.

    Well, its probly better you got it taken care of now, rather than farther down the line were the recovery would have been longer/more intense.

    Be strong.

    Most symptoms are gastrointestinal; constipation, redness of the anus (inflammation or infection), diarrhea, bloody stool. All of these must be chronic before a Chron's diagnosis will be put forward.

    There are other symptoms, but if you were unfortunate enough to have it, you'd most likely be noticing these thus far. '

    I have an idea how you feel. I lost 35 lbs of lbm after a severe injury at 47. I made it back, I think you will, too. I don't know about muscle memory, but the second time around you'll know a lot more about how to train and it shouldn't take as long.

    Good luck.

    this is the 3rd time in the hospital since september.

    Long story short, my dad was adopted so we dont know about his genes, but my mom has a distant cousin with crohns and he had surgery and hasnt had a sign of anything in 30 years....also without any medication.

    so im hoping for the best. i know recovery will be slow, but i have diet and training nailed down so im hoping for some "better quality" gains then when i initially began 4 years ago. only thing that sucks is that i havent had solid food in over 2 weeks...

    thanks for all the kind words and support guys, i really appreciate it and need it right now

    Ditto on what he said. Been there, coming back and making it happen.

    Bodybuilding can be 'productive' but I would quit it in a second for 'purpose'. Give this thing a purpose and it can change your life and someone else's greater than you can imagine.

    Consider for a second that you may be very helpful to someone who is suffering and struggling with this same issue.

    Good luck and be well.

    If you look at life and the things that happens not as accidents or as being a victim but rather that they happen for a purpose you may find empowerment from them.

    Suppose for a minute that there is a greater purpose for what is going on in your life. Suppose someone who is just experiencing this for the first time or is recently diagnose or for that matter is very ill from it. You have a powerful and potent testimony of hope and recovery that you may be able to share with someone who is less hopeful and more fearful and or frustrated, in pain and still suffering.

    You are "the other side" of this thing that they may have yet to find for themselves or believe that there is a chance or hope of finding.

    Simply put; you know personally what they are going through. You are evidence that things can be OK and you may be able to support and encourage them through it just as you were here and at home.

    You are disappointed that you cannot bodybuild like you used to. It is a very productive activity that you may have to live without for some time.

    If you see your illness and now recovery as something that has a purpose for your life it changes the perspective.

    Sometimes we suffer and recover from things (and lose things that bring us pleasure) in our lives for the very specific purpose of helping, encouraging and being evidence to others that they do not suffer alone and that they too can recover.

    Stay strong bro, youll be better some day. And you have an inspiring story for the rest of us. Indeed injuries and sickness befalls all of us at some point and our gains suffer for it. but think of the big picture, you have life and are still here, and i'm sure willl live much better due to this procedure.

    Heres to a quick recovery! I'm sure you'll be able to bounce back pretty quick in the gym once you are allowed to by the Drs.

    Man I lost A LOT of weight and muscle when I got into a bad car accident early last year. I was weighing in at 168 and was so depressed I just stayed in my room and was kind of anti-social. I was depressed that people were telling me how small and skinny I looked and just remembering how I used to look by past pictures made it even worse. I didn't even feel like putting in the time for lifting anymore, just didn't feel like doing anything. My bro got my a$$ back in the gym and I'm more hardcore and feeling better than ever! I am amazed by how much I grew, my self esteem is through the roof, and people suspected I was using gear even when I never had! I was flattered and didn't care. I did end up getting depressed over losing my muscle but pushed through it. So what I'm saying is even if it does set in for you, you can EASILY get it back...I went from sunken in face and being boney (naturally I'm not so I was reallllly in bad shape) to huge (I'm 2lbs from having a 40lb gain for almost a year). I've only done 1 full cycle of PS in my life and currently finishing up another and stopping for rest of this year as my intention was not to use PS/PH for a substitute for hard work and growth. Self esteem is up, joints (diagnosed with mild arthritis) feels great with less stress and that was my goal...so don't worry about it bud

    I think the counseling job says it all. If there's some cosmic reason for you to get this condition, maybe it involves helping others. It's funny that most of us stay immune to all the suffering around us until it affects us personally. You'll be a tremendous help to those youngsters by overcoming your plight and sharing your experiences with them. I wish you all the best!

    Hey man, sorry to hear about your health. The good thing is that you're young and resilient, and will be able to recover fast. The gains come back pretty quick, and you'll be starting with a low BF, so maybe that will cheer you up. A few years ago, i spent some time in the hospital, and lost about 20 lbs. It sucked, but I was back to full strength and size after about 4 months back at the gym. Take it easy, and just think of the gains you'll make on your next cycle. It will be like your first time all over again!

    Good luck man. While not as serious as your situation is, last summer i had mono and couldn't lift for a long time. Went from about 195ish to prob about 175 and fat from the corticosteroids they had me on.. I'm almost back to where I was before now a year later.. Woot for muscle memory

    Hope you recover quickly and are symptom free. You will get the muscle back and feel better doing it without syptoms and all the other meds you used to be on hindering gains.
