I was diagnosed with Crohn's at 17, went thru a lot of surgeries, resections and temp. ileo. Perm ileo changed my life and it's been wonderful. Yea, there is a lot to learn, and some trial and error to go thru but you will do it and feel so much better getting the disease out of you.
Diagnosed with CD in 1979, many resections and meds
Perm Ileostomy July 1984 at Cleveland Clinic
Disease free since surgery
