Hi, Well, my first thoughts were, what is Crohns, how did I get it and how will it effect my life. Oh and I asked if it was cureable. Obviously now, I know the answers to those questions and maybe it was better that they weren't honest with me. It might have been too devastating.
Questions I have now, does he or she think there is a cure on the horizon? How much does family heredity play into it? I have heard so many different ideas. 6 siblings, one has IBD and one diverticulitis. Grandmother had Crohn's. Do I have to worry my children will deal with this. What are some of the new drugs on the horizon? What are some of the diseases that Crohn's can lead to. Systemic problems from drugs? Long term affects of these new drugs. I took Remicade for over 5 years, what will my side effects be? Does anyone really know?
Thank-You for your interest in this disease, much appreciated!
