I am a 23 years old student with Crohn's disease since age seven. I recently had surgery at the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, Arizona. This surgery removed my colon, a distal portion of my ileum, and I will return in 3 months to remove my rectum.
When I'm well, I am studying to get my bachelor's degree in elementary education, and love to participate in church, see friends, cook, read, and watch movies.
Mayo hospital showed me this site as a support group and I would love to use it to make friends not only in Arizona, but all over the world! I'm also using it to seek advice on my new ileostomy so any helps tips and tricks are appreciated!
