Been a bouncy ride.


My name is Jay, I recently have been diagnosed with Crohn's. I'm 33 year old man, father of a 3 year old, and husband to a very awesome woman.

So far in my 3 months of having been diagnosed, I have had surgery twice, the first time was because of a misdiagnosis of appendicitus, second was for a phlegmon that perforated my ileum and needed emergency surgery.

I have spent roughly 4 weeks in the hospital in the last 3 months.

I have been off work (Construction) with no nmeans of restroom since May 11 with the exception of a few days after my initial surgery.

I still need to go for another CT to make sure the phlegmon has been totally removed and is not present, and I need to go for an endoscopic MRI before my GI says I can go on some kind of medication for treatment.

Sorry for the long winded story, there is lots more lol.
