Hi, I'm a Male whos 21 years of age, who also looks at alot younger then 21. I found out i had Crohns Disease about
2 years ago. I'm sure i had it sooner (maybe when i was 12 or 13 years old) but wasnt discovered unstill 2 years ago. I went from 5'4, 75 lbs to 5'7, to 135 lbs in 2 years. I'm hoping i still grow since my bone age test showed my bone age is 15. I'm not lactose intolerant ,so i drink alot of milk with Weight Gainer powder to mantain weight and Gain weight.
My doctors say "its a Mild" case, however it looks like im going to need Surgery to fix this. Its doesnt really bother me but i can still feel it on my right side. The surgery is to fix the blockage and removing only the diseased section around my small intestine area.
I never had Surgery in my life and i really dont know anyone with this Disease. So maybe you guys can help and answer some questions for me:
How was the surgery?
Do they cut your whole stomach open?
How long was the recovery time?
How kind of Meds are you on now?
How are you feeling now ?
Thank you all soo much !!!
