hey everyone I'm newbie but have had crohns since1970. at the time I was a horse jockey, I'll skip a little bit . but one day after I rode a race I was walking bak to jockey's room and everything looked like I was underwater when you
open your eye's i got dr. at the track and had 106 temp. sent me home immediately, obstuction 3 days later followed by surgery. 1 year later after 2 more surgeries and removing 9ft of small intestine. I was riding in 12 weeks rode for 16 more years minus 4 years of broken bones and 1 more resection in 1989. injured out with broken neck. but now I'm artist, design willow furniture and build. also for insurrance I'm a table games dealer at large san diego casino. so just an encouraging chat to let people know we can live somewhat normal lives if control. family support and love is some of best medicine. by the way I won over 1,000 races so exercise is really a key I mountain bike semi-professional when all things are good
*Artist guy* I am adding this post to the one I created for you. Please try to keep your subjects in the same post* Thanks for your understanding.
