The pills they gave you to help inflammation in your colon are targeted for that area...there is no telling for sure if the CD will affect any other parts of your GI tract but it's very possible since that can be the nature of the beast....don't spend too much time worrying about that though you cannot control it anyways, just deal with it one day at a time.

Don't forget, just because it affects a particular area that doesn't necessarily mean it will stay there forever either, and it can affect more then one area at a time as well but there are meds to target the common areas...this disease is very individualistic and researchers have found a cluster of genes that do predict the behaviour and severity of CD for a patient but that doesn't mean (to date) that they can control it...much research still needs to be done.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)
