You learn fast. For me not knowing I had Crohn's until my first colonoscopy at the age of 55, feeling good, immediately hospitalized, diagnosed with Crohn's within two days, told I needed surgery but then after phone consultation from one GI to another recommended Remicade. Put on Prednisone and with the side effect of insomnia, spent many many hours researching and finding this forum. Learning all the abbreviations and terms and Crohn's itself. It has been a huge help in making decisons and I thank everyone.
