Well, weren't you sorta expecting the news? Not that EVER makes it easier to digest. When my UC became CD, I still felt like I was hit upside the head. So sorry about the news. But like Dustspeck said, its time to move forward & address the problem..

Sincerely,
Matthew

Sorry to hear the news, Remicade might help you from getting surgery. I was on my last thread from getting another surgery and Remicade stopped that process. Good luck to you.
Crohns for 11 years
1 surgery so far
2 times in hospital for blockages
MEDS:
Remicade
Imuran
