Hi!  I have been suffering with Crohn's for 31 yrs.  I got it at 19, and am now 49.  I have had 2 bowel resections of large & small.  I have a stricture which is getting too narrow.  Not sure yet what will be done.  I have several bulging discs in my neck & back, deteriorating facet joint (spine), stenosis (narrowing of spinal column), Fibromyalgia.  All I believe to be ultimately from Crohn's & Pred.
I hope to get to know you all in time!

Welcome D2 to Healingwell. Looks like you and I have been having about the same fun with this DD for about as long and very similar problems too. I have had 2 resections myself, also had two disc's fused in my neck, and I too suffer from osteoarthritis (all over the place) and last but not least the Fibro. So you are definetly not alone.

You will find alot of friendly and supportive folks here. And we look forward to hearing more from you soon.

God Bless,
Gail *Nanners*
