    Hi there, That is good news that colon is fine, nothing to worry about there. Gastritis can be debilitating too so find the foods that agree with you and avoid those that irritate your tummy problem. I hope you feel better soon.

    My story

    Hi there, I am glad your son is feeling better just now. It is not an easy illness to live with so it is a real bonus to be in remission. Thank God, I too am doing better just now. Crohns hasn't gone, it never does, but it is manageable. I hope he continues to feel better.

    Hi there, hope your appointment with your Consultant goes well and you get some answers to your swallowing problem. I did suffer that years before Crohns was diagnosed. I had Para thyroidism and had to have surgery. I hope you feel better soon.

    Colonoscopy Friday, Help!

    Hi there, good luck with the Colonoscopy. Add a mixer, like Roses lime juice cordial to the Prep medicine you have to drink beforehand, at home to empty the bowel. This makes it more palatable. It could be IBS but wait and discuss this with your Doctor after results of Colonoscopy. Don't...

    Hi Andrew, and welcome. So sorry you are feeling rough just now. There are no set symptoms for everyone with Crohn's , so it takes time to diagnose, often when symptoms become severe as yours has. I understand how hard it will be for you as I was misdiagnosed too. Keep seeing your Doctor...
