I don't know this for a fact but I think I may have had a mild form of Crohn's Disease long before I was diagnosed.

Diagnosed in 1990. On Humira, Imuran, Gabapentin, Colestipol, Synthroid, Lialda. Resection in April of 2010. Allergic to Remicade, Penicillin, Flagyl, Doxycycline. Thyroid issues and psoriasis and neuropathy and mild cerebral palsy. Mild arthritis in my lower back.

I have suffered from Crohn's for just over 10 years.

In December 2015 I had part of my bowel removed and a stoma formed.

April this year my doctors reversed the stoma and reconnected my bowel.

My doctors told me that most people love stoma's and that they ask not to have them removed.

I found the experience terrible and was glad to have it reversed.

If you're considering surgery then find out if it will be possible to reconnect your bowel.

If it's not then do a boat load of research and think very hard because it will be a life-changing operation.
