I am a twenty-five year old female with Crohn's Disease and Endometriosis. I've been diagnosed with the Crohn's for eight years and had my first bowel resection last May. I felt great for quite awhile afterwards, but I am now experiencing pain from whar doctors can only pinpoint as adhesions from scar tissue. My primary care is strongly urging me to get surgery, but when I met with the surgeon last week he didn't want to touch me because of the risk. I am seeing another one in two weeks for a second opinion. Hopefully something can be done other than being drugged up on pain pills.

In my spare time (and when the pain lets up) I enjoy kickboxing and soccer. I'm looking to join a yoga class where I go kickboxing.
