Hi and welcome :) It's never easy for a parent to watch their child suffer regardless of how old they get. It's a tough disease to have thats for sure. Personally it sounds as if your daughter might have CD because Uc does not affect the small intestine at all. It is a disease of the large intestine and only penetrates to the mucousal layer. While Cd can affect the entire digestive tract. You should have your daughter call her doctor for clarification. There is a condition called Crohns colitis which is basically Crohns that is limited to the large intestine. I'm sorry that you are having to watch your daughter go thru this. But just by you coming here seeking advice and support shows how much you care as a mom.
