So sorry about your daughter,,,,,my sister and I were very young when we became sick,, the STRESS that a Mom and Dad have to suffer with [seeing your sick kid does a lot on the mind] Im 51 now in my time there wasnt much to do but "NPO" no food or drink[at all] to rest the intestines....Now thank GOD there is so much meds and knowledge out there... Stay strong.. Wish your family HOPE to help you get by....Rod..Pretty sure my father has it, he's always had a dodgy belly, but its mild. My Daughter has it -again very mild.
I know my pepere' [grandfather] had it he NEVER complained about anything, was alway haing accidents and you can see the pain in his face..He is the first that the family knows [thinks] had it...... I was very small I alway felt bad to see him that way..............That was the 70's-90's.....for me....He couldve been sick since the 40's, nobody knows for sure......I have two first cousins who are the same age as me who have it. Prior to the three of us, our great-grandmother had "malabsorption" and required surgery on her small intestine. This was sometime between 1935 and 1940, which was the same era when Dr. Crohn was first describing the condition so no one really knew what to call it. She was in her 40s when she had to have the surgery.
