Sorry, I haven't posted in a long time, but now I have a new issue I'd like to explore...Obviously, many people with Crohn's have problems being too thin, but I'm about 100 pounds overweight, and I know there are others on this site that also have that problem from a previous post. I am looking into bariatric/weight loss surgery, and while I realize that that is not usually recommended for people with Crohn's, I was wondering if there were any people on here who had had it done and how you fared/are faring, both Crohn's-wise and weight-wise. Any responses would be appreciated. Thanks.
29 yo female with two fuzzy children: a Pom named Snuggles and a Pom mix named PomPom.
Health History: Type I diabetes (19 years), allergies/asthma, hypothyroidism, osteopenia & multiple fractures, iron-deficiency anemia, Crohn's (of course), and depression (go figure.)
Crohn's History: May have had it since I was 11 (1988-89), definitely have had it since I was 15, was diagnosed when I was 25 (2003) and re-diagnosed June 2007.
