ive beat crohns disease!
Hi... I am 26 years old and was diagnosed with crohns disease when I was 13 years old when I was rushed into hospital with "suspected" inflamed appendix... When they removed my appendix they realised that I had a inflamed bowl and decided to remove part of it and also a small amount of my intestine which was attached to the inflamed bowl, I was on pentasa tablets for about 3 years to keep my crohns under control, when I was 18 when I had my last attack with it, stress, minestrone soup and spicy food brought the pains on I was discharged from hospital in 2004 stopped taking my pentasa tablets in 2003 and iv never had a "crohns disease moment" since! :o)
