Join the Largest Ostomy Community


I'm 32 years old and was diagnosed with Crohn's disease in 2008. Having struggled with this for almost half my life, I just recently decided to begin the process of discussing my surgical options. My GI doctor has recommended surgery as my best option for quality of life moving forward. My first consultation is coming up next week and I have been looking on the internet for different patients stories. This site popped up and has been helpful in sharing those stories.
