Hello, i`m from mauritius island. I wanted to share my experiennce. I have crohn disease since 4 years.
I was pregnant of 3 months and i made a surgery. Fortunately my baby is alive and now she is 3 years old , i m still on pills. I did not think about it and live my life like a normal person.
Don`t think about it, i know sometimes it hurts...

Hello christine:

Welcome to the healing well forum.

You were pregnant when you found out that you had crohn's disease? Were you very scared to have surgery when you were pregnant? I was sick first when I was pregnant for my third baby. When I went to the hospital I was afraid I would miscarry and lose my baby. I did not and now my baby is 29 years old.

I am so glad that you were able to keep the pregnancy and that you have a beautiful little girl. She must keep you very busy. It is easier to forget bad things when you have a beautiful baby to care for. Please do not ignore your pain if it gets any worse. I'm glad you have pills. Pills have really helped me.

30+ years living with Crohn's.

Welcome Christine,

First of all I want to say it's so nice to communicate with people from all over the world!!!!!  My symptoms also began when I was pregnant with my second daughter, but I wasn't diagnosed until last year.  I know that our children give joy to our lives, but sometimes we need to be really strong to face all the challenges!!!!!

Therefore I hope you take good care of yourself first of all, so that you can also take care of your loved ones.

Hello Christine, I'm so pleased you found us, but I'm also sorry you can't have this baby. Did you doctor tell you why? Is it
that the pains are too bad and they need to help you? Keep talking to us.....

Welcome, here you will find lots of love and support, and sometimes, just a good stick around....

just curious, is your island near South Africa? from what I understand, Crohn's disease is far less common in that area of the world.

I am Jennifer from Mauritius Island, I was diagnosed with crohn's disease at the age of 13 years old and now I am 27.

I had several surgery, the last one was 2 years ago.(intestinal oclusion).

I got married last year, and my husband and I are trying to conceive.. but in vain.

Is it due to frequent flare up?
