My diarrhea, fever, fatigue, blood in stool, sores, pain and discharge near the anus is getting out of hand so I came to the doctor.
Sir from looking at your colonoscopy it seems like you are suffering from Crohn's disease like 780,000 other Americans. But Good news is that it is easy to manage just with medication and diet.
So what is wrong with me doctor?
No there is not it can only be managed.
Is there a cure?
The last segment of the intestine (ileum) is affected and inflamed or in some cases the colon. This can be mild or severe can develop gradually or suddenly without warning.
So what exactly is Crohn's disease?
The cause remains unknown. There are some theories about it being diet or stress related but these only worsen the symptoms, not cause them. Doctors now believe that it could be caused by a malfunctioning immune system or it could be heredity.
What did I do to get this? Could I have prevented it?
Since the disease cannot be treated you need to watch for, bowel obstruction, ulcers, fistulas, malnutrition, colon cancer. Also continue with your diet and medications.
