Has anyone found statistics of death due to IBD?
I can't find numbers but two friends have told me one of their parents died from UC complications. Glenn Fry of the Eagles, reportedly died of pneumonia and colitis
Surgery is always a risk, perforations, complications, infections etc. My friend said his surgeon told him he had a 50% chance of , due to colon surgery, becoming impotent.
Death, and injury statistics is what I'm looking for.
Any MPH in the house? Masters of Public Health. Those stats are their wheelhouse
It is terrifying that somebody as ill-informed as you ("my friend told me....") is on an advisory panel. I'm starting to wonder if you are some high-level troll and whether or not I should be taking your posts seriously. It is not remotely hard to find statistics on IBD and mortality: putting in IBD and mortality into google will yield several studies on the first page alone. Ditto surgery risks, but then you wouldn't be able to come out with nonsense statistics that your "friends" tell you.
