I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease in 2000. In 1999 I almost died. My doctor had never heard of Crohns. I am serious. I was treated for appendicitis. I was very sick I lost 60 lbs in less than two months. I spent 12 days in the hospital with my doctor treating me for appendicitis. I was hurting in my right side so bad that Vicodin 10, Percocet 10 and Demerol 50 wasn’t phasing it. They had to give me 4mg of morphine every 4 hours. Also I ended up throwing up my bowels it was nasty and smelled so bad it was awful. So in 2000 I had that pain again and that is when my doctor found my appendix. So then he sent me to a gastrologist. He did a CT scan and found that I had Crohn’s bad. The surgeon did a 10 hour surgery on me to get me better. He said it looked like a bomb went off in my bowels. I was beefy red inside and my fever was over 106 degrees. The pain of Crohn’s is very bad. I still have a little trouble. In 2007 I had my second surgery with it. Now I am on Remicade every 8 weeks with mp6 daily. I know the pain you all go through with Crohn’s and the baggage it brings with it, I hope you all get better soon..
