    Pain that wakes you up?

    Hey everyone, I think my Crohn's has gradually got a bit worse since my nurses decided to cut my Pentasa from 4g to 2g a day. I (stupidly) tried takeaway pizza the other day and really suffered with it! Then last night I couldn't get to sleep until about 2am because my stomach was really...

    Strange Smelling Sweat

    Bit of a weird question....but I have really noticed this recently. My sweat has a really strange smell, not horrible, but not nice either. It's really sweet and distinctive and my husband can smell it too. It's not associated with hygiene because it doesn't go away after a shower or anything...

    How does a flare hold you back?

    Disappointing Hospital Appointment

    I had my 6 week follow up with my surgeon today after my small bowel resection/diagnosis of Crohn's disease and I need to get your opinions on this. My discharge notes said that I had 'severe terminal ilietis', I also had an abscess cavity and ulcerating inflammation with 'cobblestone...

    Medication Post surgery

    Hi everyone. I had a resection on my small intestine via emergency/open surgery on the 28th November. This was when I found out that I had Crohn's disease as they removed 10cm of diseased bowel and 4cm of my colon as well as my cecum and appendix. I also had a fissuring absess cavity and it...

    Newly diagnosed & recovering post-op

    Hi everyone :sign0144: & this is my story: I was experiencing symptoms of Crohn's Disease since the beginning of 2012 but (stupidly) decided to ignore them in the hope that they would correct themselves. The symptoms suddenly became severe around the 20th November and I was experiencing...
