I have had Crohns Disease for 15 years & I suffer from whats called colonic crohns .. Which I'm sure is what the "cc" is your referring to.
I have had the exact same experience as you!!
For the last few yrs, I just seem to struggle with insane constipation!
I have gone 18 - 19 days ... It's so frustrating!!
Sadly I haven't got the best answers for you - I've tried every safe remedy I can find .. Raw garlic has helped in the past.. But never choose surgery unless you have no other choice!! Crohns will just move on to healthy tissue and continue causing the same problems or worse - what the other lady that replied said - scar tissue / adhesions etc.View Thread
