I went 20 years without needing surgery. My ileum decided to perforate which caused a resection, then I got toxic megacolon causing me to have a temporary ileostomy. I had that reversed 4 weeks ago now.
Dx with Crohn's 1987, symptoms as early as 1984.
Temp iliostomy February 2007, reversed June 2007, Ovarian cysts, migraines, allergies (incl food allergies) , oral allergy syndrome (diff than true food allergies), Asthma, Gall Bladder removed 1999, Inguenal hernia 1987
