    MSE weekly email - writer with Crohn's disease 4th Feb 18 at 2:33 PM
    This is a bit random but I would really appreciate it if anyone could help me.

    My mum said that she had read one of the MSE weekly emails and one of the writers was discussing the fact he had just returned after being seriously ill with Crohn's disease and was recovering from the surgery. She said he had linked to some sites about Crohn's disease.

    My husband is 4 months post surgery for Crohn's and is still really ill so I really appreciate people highlighting the illness and would like to track the email down to read his experiences and look at the links he had suggested.

    I have been going though my deleted emails but I have not been able to find this one so far.

    Thank you!

    Found it! Did not think to look at this weeks email as I thought (obviously not) I had read it.

    I have early stages Crohn's and although I want the consultant to just cut out the affected part of my bowel, he insists that i try different medications first.
    The first one almost killed my liver and I was touch and go for a while after only 10 days on the med, I have just started another med called methotrexate and although it has a thousand side effects (including death) my system seems to be coping with it so far.

    Not visited the site myself yet but www crohnsandcolitis.org.uk is the one recommended by the GI nurse.

    MTX isn't too bad in the doses prescribed for autoimmune diseases. Just keep having the blood tests and at the first sign of infection, see your GP/Dentist/contact the clinic for advice. Oh, and DON'T miss out the folic acid tablets on the other day(s).

    [from experience, I'd suggest you have a checkup at the dentist/hygienist and tell them you've started it, just to make certain there's nothing grumbling away before it makes itself known]
    I could dream to wide extremes, I could do or die: I could yawn and be withdrawn and watch the world go by.

    Yup you are officially Rock n Roll
