So sorry to hear about your trouble Tigscub.

Many of us were diagnosed with Crohn's only to find that we had the disease for many years before we were diagnosed. In my case, it was totally accidental! I took a colonoscopy in December 2010 only because I was due and had fulfilled my out-of-pocket so it was free! A biopsy later and I was diagnosed. Go figure. I thought diarrhea and bloody stool and lower abdominal pain were just bad diet and bad luck.

Stay with your doctor's prescribed regimen of meds and stay close this forum and other resources until you find a comfortable place with your disease.
