Hello everyone. I am a new member and am glad to find such a supporting and knowledgeable group. In 1998, I had a small bowel blockage and had part of small bowel removed. A week later, i was very ill and not getting any better. Had a exploratory op to find out I had gangrene in small bowel. Had more removed. Now I am left with 1/3 of my small bowel. Diagnosed with Crohn's Disease. Never heard of it until then.Have had many complications. Currently taking Remicade every 6 weeks, Purinethol, Lonox, Levsin Sl, Fish oil, Anamantle Cream,Cortifoam, and many other medicines.23 medicines on a daily basis. I "rattle" when I walk. lol.You all have a super day.
