My crohn's

Hello, my names adele and im 22 and living with crohn's disease. In 2010/2011 i was very ill and lost loads of weight (down to 6st) and couldn't stay awake longer than an hour. I was unable to eat and ended up having ensure nutritional supplements. On 13th May 2011, i had my first operation where the doctor explained that i was very messed up inside and had to remove numerous blocked areas leaving me with an ileostomy and a mucous fistula. Luckily in 4 weeks time on 3rd May 2012 im going in to hopefully get evrything put back together. Fingers crossed!!!
