Hello All, My name is bob my wife found this forum for me, thinkin maybe i could be useful lol.
Iwas diagnosed with crohns 26 years ago, I was 22 yrs. old at that time. Have had the same dr. since diagnosis.
Have been on a lot of different treatments, and have had lots of bad experiences concerning treatment and the disease. At times it can be very hard managing and living with crohns, i can see havin a little support group like this could be very helpful. God knows i coulda used it a few times over the years. Who knows, maybe i can help someone else out.
Hello Bob - I just found this site and I love it. I have found confirmation on many things I've been dealing with and a true prospect of what I might have to expect in the future. I hope you're enjoying it as much as I am. I knew there were many out there with crohns but this isn't one you really like to discuss with friends. Who wants to talk about pooping all the time. I was 13 when I was diagnoised and now 42. It seems like a whole new thing since I turned 40. Symptoms are much different then and the flare ups last much longer. Uggh another sign that I'm getting older!!!
