I have Crohn's disease and sometimes when I go to the toilet, my 'poop' smells really strange, not the usual bad. Does anyone else have wierd smells too? (i dont mean a really bad smell either, just really odd)
Ummmmm........depends what sorta smell. If it smells like blood or somth than maybe u should call a doctor. My poop somtimes smells like something is rotting - really gross!

P.S what is chrons disease??
I have Crohn's too. I have had it for almost 20 years now. I'm only 34. My poops smell weird. It usually depends on what I eat. Don't worry. How long have you been diagnosed with it? How old are you? What are your symptoms like on a day to day basis?
Sorry for all the questions, it's just hard to find people to share this disease with.
I'm 19, I have been told for 2 years it was IBS, but the other week I saw my specialist and he told me it was Crohn's. Right now my symptoms are pretty bad, blood in my stools, constant tiredness and I always feel sick after or am after my evening meal. I think the meds I take make me feel sick too
What type of meds are you on Chelle? Are you taking calcium with vitamin D? If not I recommend you do. Because of absorption issues and steroids (if you've been on them) we are at risk of osteopenia and/or osteoporosis. I was just told I have both. Unfortunately when first diagnosed I was on massive doses of steroids and wasn't told this. I was told I had IBS for about 25-30 years before finally being diagnosed with crohns. Did you have a colonoscopy to get the crohns diagnosis? When do you see the doc again?
