Hi becca04
Insurance is going to be your best friend from here on out. You are going to new some sort state assistance. I have probably spent over $300,000.00 the last 7 years between hospital stays, surgeries , specialty treatments, medications, traveling to and from. It's so expensive being sick!! Start questioning the hospital about state help

Look into assistance programs. You don't want to let it go and have more damage happen. You will need to consult with a GI for a treatment plan.

Please look into some assistance programs or try getting insurance if possible. Without it, life would be so much difficult with Crohn's!
