I was recently diagnosed with Crohn's in the terminal ileum (last part of the small intestine) I started last week with horrible pain again, I had another CT. It showed the meds were not working so now they put me on 30mg of prednisone and Imuran. I now have an abcess so I was put on 100mg of cipro for 2 weeks. I'm over it:( I found out I have 7 inches of diseased intestine.....Is that alot? The Dr seems to think the new treatment of meds may help.....anyone have any knowledge of these things or any advice??????
