• Welcome to Crohn's Forum, a support group for people with all forms of IBD. While this community is not a substitute for doctor's advice and we cannot treat or diagnose, we find being able to communicate with others who have IBD is invaluable as we navigate our struggles and celebrate our successes. We invite you to join us.

Introduce myself-new to the forum

I thought it would be nice to introduce myself before I start posting/reading, on the forum.
My name is Melanie, I have often browsed crohn's support groups, but only ever joined one other. I have suffered with crohn's for 20 years. I have recently had a colectomy and panproctomy, I can only hope now that I will get a better quality of life than I was having before :) .
I look forward to chatting to new people, helping with other people's question/queries and vice versa :thumright:
