Re: Chron's Disease?
I have had Crohn's for almost 10yrs but was only diagnosed 3yrs ago. The drug treatment has not been so successful for me because the disease had caused so much permanent scaring over the years. There was a period of calm when they started me on Azathioprine, was fine for a while and managed to reduce problems by sticking to a low fiber diet. However, I still ended up in hospital a few times.
Things are looking bright now though, I am 5wks after an operation in which they removed the damaged bowel section. The next phase of the treatment is to take the right drugs in order to halt the reoccurrence of the disease. Hopefully I could have 5-10yrs of normality.
