Crohn's Disease

Crohn's disease is a type of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that may affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract. Signs and symptoms often include abdominal pain, diarrhea, fever, and weight loss, and possible bowel obstruction.  Other complications may occur outside the gastrointestinal tract and include anemia, skin rashes, arthritis, and tiredness.  Crohn's disease is caused by a combination of environmental, immune and bacterial factors in genetically susceptible individuals. It results in a chronic inflammatory disorder, in which the body's immune system attacks the gastrointestinal tract possibly directed at microbial antigens.

Craniopharyngioma And Resulting Infertility

This is a very personal, sensitive topic for me and I would appreciate if you have somehow found this video and have negative feelings about it, to please keep them to yourself. I created this video to bring awareness to the condition my husband was diagnosed with and how we have been dealing with infertility because of his treatments. I did the best with the information that I have and have collected over the years since his diagnosis. In no way is it complete. There is still a lot we don't know and a lot left to be learned as this is a life long condition. I left a lot of this unedited because I felt like that was the right thing to do regarding this information. Dealing with a situation like this alone is one of the hardest things I have ever done in my life, and I don't want other people dealing with it to go through the same feelings. If anyone out there is dealing with the same thing, feel free to contact me. Even if you just need someone to talk to. Even if you are dealing with any other kinds of infertility. Pain is pain, regardless of the circumstances. Like I said in the video, I am not looking for sympathy, and that wasn't why I created this video. I wanted to bring awareness to our situation because I feel like there isn't enough information on his condition available to people. We have struggled to find information on it since his diagnosis. I will keep you guys updated on our journey when there is new information to be had. Thank you for taking the time to watch this.
