Dating with crohns
On July 14th 2017, I celebrated a pretty big 10-year anniversary.It wasn't an amazing career milestone or hitting my Tin wedding anniversary. We all have our little secrets, our issues to bear, the things about us we don’t want the whole world to know and my colostomy bag was mine.He was prescribed eardrops, antibiotics and other medications, but nothing seemed to help, said Dr. Raynor, a pediatric head-and-neck surgeon at Duke University Medical Center who treated the boy."It was like swimmer's ear gone crazy," Raynor said.
[16 Oddest Medical Cases] Doctors put the boy under anesthesia to perform a biopsy of his ear.Results from this biopsy and a second skin biopsy revealed that he had a skin condition that can occur as a complication of Crohn's disease.Crohn's disease is a condition that causes swelling and irritation in the digestive tract, which can lead to symptoms such as abdominal pain and diarrhea.Nope, it’s 10 years of living with a colostomy bag. However, a lot has changed in the last few years and there are so many things I wish I’d known earlier on.Now, if someone had said to me 3 years ago I would talk to even my closest friends and family about this ‘thing,’ let alone millions of you, I would have laughed them out of the bar (that’s where we would have been, as I would have had to be consuming a lot of alcohol to come up with an idea that was so insane). So here I am, ten years later and I’ve decided the best way to mark the occasion is to write a message to the old me and to all the other women who may just be starting out on that same journey, about the new world I was entering.
