my story starts out in the Air Force. I started having issues with my gut but I just thought that it was food that I was eating, because I just got stationed at Andersen afb in guam. when I got out about once every 6 months I would have(to me would be a like the 24 hour flu) but it would last for a week. When I finally was able to get into the VA one of my labs came back that I was really low on Iron and the done a colonoscopy. they found a inflammatory mass, I had surgery to remove it that was in 2014. it took my Dr. 3 more years and Friday they finally said that I have Crohns
