My Story:
Hi, my name is Cheli but my granddaughter, Mag's, calls me Jeaneau. I was born and raised in New Orleans but now live in the Chattanooga, Tn. area since Katrina. For many years I have suffered with gastrointestinal problems but did not have Crohn's flare symptoms till August 2006. I was finally diagnosed with Crohn's in March 2007. I had esosive esophogitis, gastric ulcer and 4 colon ulcers. Was on the gambit of medications except for the biologics. I was in and out of the hospital till August when I finally went into remission.
Not only do I have gastro problems I am also a chronic pain patient. I have several herniated lumbar discs, DDD, facet joint syndrome and arthritis. In 2008, i ended up with a total hip replacement. Everything has stabilized as of now and I pray they stay that way.
