"I don't want to lose my colon"
"I've lost 70lbs"
I was diagnosed in December of 2013 and have not been able to maintain my weight. Under the care of a GI specialist I have tried Prednisone, Lialda, Remicade, and pain pills. I've also tried counseling, body talk, and massage. I need somebody to show me what to do to get better.
"I want to go to college, but I can't"
My plans for starting college in the Fall of 2014 are on hold for now because I am too unhealthy. I can't stop losing weight and most days the pain is unbearable. My doctor is talking about removing my colon, but I'm only 18.
