What is the outlook for me?
That depends on how severe your Crohn's disease is and what complications you have. Although Crohn's disease is a serious and chronic disease, it is usually not a fatal disease. Appropriate therapies can help you have a reasonable quality of life. The longer you have disease that is not controlled by medications, the more likely you are to develop complications.
