    Just got back from the hospital. I have been diagnosed with Crohns. While I won't get into detail about the condition I will tell you this, it has no cure. This is a big deal and I figured the more prayer, insight, and help I can get, the better. Any input would be greatly appreciated. (feel free to Wiki the condition). If you or anyone you know has Crohns, feel free to help me out with questions.

    Stay positive. It may not have a cure, but it is manageable.

    Exactly. Many of us have permanent injuries and/or diseases. I'm sure it is not fun some of the time, but keep a positive attitude and it will all work out for you.

    My wife's cousin has it, has had for a few years now. Aside from getting some type of treatment every month or so he lives a normal full life.

    This is what i have seen as well. I know several folks with Crohns and they manage quite well. Just hang in there and do what you need to do to take care of yourself. We are all here to support each other.

    I have corhns and I have lost 13 inches of my large intestine about 7 years ago. Almost died on the operating table. I was Laying on the couch one night got up and my intestine exploded. Worst pain I have ever felt. Lots better now they cut out all of it but just found out a year ago it back. Now I'm on 23 pills a day and no red meat yeah right :)
