Hi my name is Toni,and I am new to the group.And I myself have Crohns and IBS as a child I spent most of my time in and out of hospitals.At about 12yr old I started having trouble with my stomach.But the doctor couldnot tell my parents what was wrong.At age 19 they diagnosed me with crohns.I started taking Asocol.At 20 I found out I was pregant.The doctors told me that crhons was not genetic.Well I am 36yrs and Savannah is 15yrs.A two years ago she started having alot of stomach pain. I thought that it was because she had started her period and it was heavy I put her on birthcontrol but nothing changed.So just to be safe I had her doctor give her a colonoscopy.Her doctor told me not to worry.she was almost certan that it was not crohns.Most likely that she was becoming a women. Well she was wrong. And my world stopped, I couldnt stop crying.You have to understand I have been sick her hole life .On so many meds and I had a new doctor we had moved from OK to AZ to be by my parents I ended up overdoseing and savannaha came to check on me and I wasnt breathing . I lost a year of my life a year of my daughter growing up.Savannah is taking pentasa and has been on remicade for a year.Friday Im taking her for a GI and monday a colonoscopy her doctor thinks we may have to try Humera do any of you have a child taking this med????? I'v read about it and the side effects sound really BAD I Like and trust her doctor but after what happened to me I want to know from a parent some one eles with a child that as this horrible disease. Thanks for reading and I am happy I found this group I need other to talk to. Toni
