Has there been any corolation between women that have never had bowel issues before. After having a c-section delivery, causing or experencing colits or crohns symptoms. Also if so has any of the standard medications worked for you?
I was diagnosed after my last pregancy c-section delivery and no medications have worked or has made my symptoms worse.
I wanted to know if I was being diagnosed wrong because it presents as crohns/colitis but not actually it.
