jid, I hope you get the ok to help your friend!!! I also would take an organ if I was going to die even though it may give me a disease. She may even get a mild form of CD or none at all.
I also wanted to say what a great person you are for considering giving an organ!!
What a wonderful person you are to want to give one of your own organs, I want to thank you for being such a great person.
Because of the many meds people with Crohns Disease take or may need to take and the surgeries they may go through, giving up even one kidney could put you in jepordy.
We found out on a CT scan my husband was born with only one kidney so he has no fall back. He is at high risk for surgery as any damage to his kidney would be devestating.
I will keep your friend in my prayers.Kitt

I think it is great you considered donating an organ. That is a very sweet and very giving thing to do!
I am sad to learn that having this disease means we cannot donate.
I will keep your friend in my thoughts and prayers. Please let us know how she is doing.
