Just a wee post to say hi as I have just joined up.
I live in New Zealand and have had crohns since the early 90's.
We were living in asia when I got sick and as Crohn's isn't an asian disease (interesting huh?) I was not correctly diagnosed until we came back to NZ by which time a good deal of damage had been done.
History of hospitilisations due to obstructions with side issues of kidney stones. Resection surgery in 2009 now the obstructions are back ;(
I do have an awesome specialist and surgeon so consider myself very lucky in that respect.
We are looking at remicade/humira as the next step in meds.
Interested in your feedback on a couple of things so will post them as seperate new topics.
Thanks for all the positive info you guys post :)
