i have crohn's and have used this site so much. it's been very helpful - especially before my surgery! my 8 yr. old niece has been diagnosed w/ uc this yr & has had a horrible time - bleeding, complete bowel rest, tpn, lengthy hosp. stays, different meds to try, finally the md's began her on remicade and her 1st infusion went well. (she's currently in hospital). it's been a very difficult family year.
my brother and wife feel very "alone" in this, they haven't met anyone (parents w/ a uc child) and are looking for support. anyone out there who can relate? i will refer them to this site! thanks so much!
