Hello everyone I'm new here and just wanted to say Hi. Ive been reading the posts for a little while now and am very glad to have found you. Its not easy talking to people about this disease becouse most say "Crohn's never heard of it" Must admit I hadn't until I was diagnosed with it. I've learned very quicky what a complex disease it really is. It amazes me as I read the posts how much you've all gone through. I havn't had any surgery's yet and hope to never have to. Thanks for all being here and having a place to come to when no one else understands.
