Does anyone have a kid with Ulcerative Colitis or Chrons Disease?

I have a son that had U.C and now he is having problems due to the surgery. The doctor said he may come down with Chron's Disease. I was wondering if there are any other mom's out there dealing with similar problems.

  • Not those, but, mine has severe IBS with Chronic functional abdominal pain. His stomach hurts a lot and he has issues with diarrhea a lot. It started after a dentist overdosed him on antibiotics.

  • I'm sorry this isn't a real answer, but my best friend was diagnosed with Chron's when she was 10 or 11. She has never been a candidate for surgery. However, I've seen her try various prescription drugs, treatments and diets. Rimicaid (sp?) has seemed to help her the most, as well as watching her diet. I'm not sure how young the drug approval goes... Her mom stressed often over it, which drove her crazy... I think once her mom became her "cheerleader" and her friends and I were her support system, things were easier. Good luck!
