Coping with Crohns
I am 38 years old. I was diagnosed about a year ago. I had a 90% shut down of my upper and lower intestines with a partial lung collapse. I was hospitalized for nearly a month before they finally figured out I had Crohns. Along with my Crohns I also have ulcers and severe acid reflux. I have suffered with horrible intestinal and back pain. I am currently on Prednisone,Pentasa,Metronydizole,and Imuran.
Without a doubt, this disease is extremely painful but it helps to know I am not alone. Thank you to all of you sharing your stories.
