I just wanted to express my thoughts to you. I am so sorry for what you are going through. If you can imagine, both of my older brothers, ages 27 and 28 have lived with chohns since childhood. One of them battles it a lot worse than the other. One lives a much healthier lifestyle than the other. It is considered an autoimmune disease. I too battle an auto immune disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis since I was 18 months old. It is hereditary, but found in more men than women. It is found in jewish male descendants. I have seen my brothers, and been there through their surgeries and it was rough. Chad, 28, has half of his colon left and Ryan, 27, has, 1/3 of his colon left. I feel for you and hope that if it is true, and if you do in fact have crohns, I wish you all the best, and remember a positive attitude and healthy lifestyle will go a long way.
