Did they specify which part specifically? Mine is in the ileum being where the small and large intestines meet. This is not too uncommon either which I was asking....
It can definitely be crohn's, there is no any one diet but many of us stick to low fiber or the Specific Carbohydrate Diet and avoid junk food like the plague, and there really is no telling what the future holds. The best you can do is just take care of yourself, change your diet, make sure you avoid stress (dear god this is so important), and make sure you have plenty of support...I can't really answer much more at the moment, but I'd be happy to answer any more questions as someone who was also diagnosed at 19. I also quit smoking and drinking after diagnosis. A little difficult at times but worth it.
