Very Slow Recovery after diagnosis
by Kent Louis
My brother-in-law was recently diagnosed with Crohn's disease. He has been in and out of the hospital ER and extended stay many times over the past month until they finally diagnosed his illness. His recovery has been very slow, and every time he leaves the hospital's care he backslides significantly and returns to the ER. Is this typical for this disease? He has become extremely depressed and discouraged and is feeling like there is no positive outcome from where he is with Crohn's. His weight loss is around 35 Lbs to date and he has no strength.
Words of encouragement from anyone?
