I was diagnosed with Crohns, over thirty years ago. I have had at least five bowel obstructions, and one surgery, back in January, 2000. My Ilium, is partially gone, and several feet of intestine. I am in “remission” supposedly, but have been feeling symptoms lately. When someone asks me how I am feeling, I don’t know how to answer anymore. I am always fatigued. I can’t tell anymore if my symptoms are worsening, or staying the same. I fear that I will need more surgery, eventually, and have had more Colonoscopies, than I can remember. I feel defeated, and tired.
