Crohns it is
I received a letter confirming that I do indeed have Crohns disease. I've been prescribed a course of drugs and will see the specialist in three months or so.
So far so good. Except that my symptoms have all but disappeared since the week before my last hospital appointment (about six weeks ago).
I spoke to my GP about this. I still have to take the course. So if my symptoms don't recur (a 50/50 chance)- will that be down to the treatment or chance?
If they do recur- does that mean the treatment isn't working?
Surely I have to be having a flare up when I start treatment in order to prove the treatment works one way or the other?
