Hi I would like to start again and introduce myself as I sort of started on the end of another thread and I realise this was a mistake! My apologies.(was nervous)
I am 51yrs old female living in Australia, born in Zimbabwe. I have had CD for about 18yrs now and in the last few years I seem to only be in remission for about two months at a time before having to go through a flare up. As I get older my FU's seem to get worse and I usually have to go to hosp. to get IV meds. This is a huge hassle in day to day life.Too much time taken up with sick leave. Have had the usual colonoscopies and been told I have strictures here and there. Bowel operation looming I think.
This is the first time I am actually talking to other fellow sufferers and it feels good. Friends and family are great but they cannot really understand the fears and frustrations we go through.
