My grandfather had his first colonoscopy yesterday. My aunt told me today that there’s a possibility of him having Crohn’s disease, but the doctors will look further into that possibility before determining if he does.
If it turns out that he does have Crohn’s (god forbid) it will kind of make sense why I have it, because before finding this out there was literally no history of Crohn’s in my family at all.
Apparently there are days where blood suddenly comes out and stains the back of his clothes,so he just washes it off and goes on with his life.
His thought process was “if it doesn’t hurt me, I don’t need to get it checked or be worried about it”, no wonder he’s thin and doesn’t have any appetite.
Whatever it is I hope it isn’t Crohn’s and that it’s curable, because this isn’t an easy journey to go through.
