Ok I lied... I'm having too much fun posting all over the place. I was just curious... which do you all prefer (even though I guess it doesn't really matter at this point): Crohn's in the colon, small bowel, or both? I know different phenotypes behave differently so I was just curious.
 
I have it only in my colon, and I'm pretty happy with that right now... though I've heard the phenotype of Crohn's Colitis + Skin tags is highly aggressive. I don't have the latter. Does anyone have both and consider their case mild?

I have both, crohns-colitis and perianal crohns skin tags, and to be honest I cannot vote in your poll because I really prefer to have neither, nor do I prefer to have it in the small bowel, which at one time (in the beginning of getting sick) I did have it in all the above locations mentioned AND in the rectom as well.

Needless to say, I hate this disease regardless of where it's attacking.

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

I don't "prefer" any of them either, but I've had all of them.

wow I didn't realize that pb4... and you're not on immunosuppressents??? I'm impressed. I'm thinking I might try some of the natural remedies you have.

Their is a "better" place to have CD? Well, I've had colon, rectum, & peri-anal disease during every flair. Various difficulties have prevented much investigation of my small intestine, but I show symptoms of involvement there as well..

I assume my current flare is in my colon. My TI affected was removed in my surgeries. I assume mine is in the colon now is cuz my pain is on the L (only have the end half of my colon left...it didnt wake up after resection ...temp ostomy reversal...) My fistula that is draining under my belly button is releasing pentasa beads which is why I assume mine is in the Lg bowel now


Dx with Crohn's 1987, symptoms as early as 1984.
Temp iliostomy February 2007, reversed June 2007, Ovarian cysts, migraines, allergies (incl food allergies) , oral allergy syndrome (diff than true food allergies), Asthma, Gall Bladder removed 1999, Inguenal hernia 1987

Mine is in the TI, and I've also had in in the rectal area (abcess, fissue and fistula). I also would rather vote none! I'd prefer to not have it all!
