What does remission look like?


Thu, February 13, 2020 8:42 PM

I've had a diagnosis of Crohn's disease since I was 17, over 20 years ago now. I've had 2 bowel resections and some brief periods of low disease activity afterward, but my disease has been steadily worsening over the past 10 years, so much so that I don't even remember what remission might look like. Have you achieved clinical remission? For how long? What does that look like for you? Are you completely symptom free or just have reduced symptoms? I'm starting some new treatment soon and am trying to get hopeful about the possibility of feeling better.
