In 1983 I was diagnosed with Crohn's while undergoing an exploratory surgery to find out why I had an obstruction. I was 5 months pregnant at the time. They told me when I awoke I had crohn's and that they had released the band of obstruction and wanted to put me on prednisone and try to ease the stricture. Unfortunately in November and my 7th month the obstruction was back and I had a resection done. My son was born in February healthy by C-Section and is now 24 and healthy as a horse.
My second pregnancy went great, my third was a premature delivery but she was also healthy and is now 19.
Some say they (strictures) get better cause you eat better...others say they get worse. I was just very very sick for a long time before I ever got pregnant and it took my OBGYN to believe my symptoms and take action.
Dx'd with crohn's 1983, resections 83,85 and 89 Double Strictureplasty 2005, Dx'd COPD 2000, Psoriasis 2002 and Fibromyalgia 2005.
