I was diagnosed with chrones when i was 13.. I have had 2 bowel resections which took out about 10 feet of my intestines.. I have had numerous hospital stays and nothing helps medication wise. I am now 24 and coping with this disease... Stress does not help it out much especially with the severe polyps on my intestines and some very fine pin holes in them as well. If anyone has the same pls feel free to email me so we can chat back and forth about problems or just for support.
