Welcome to Crohn's Zone, the support community for people with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.crohn

Crohn's Zone is a friendly interactive forum based community for people all over the world with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, collectively known as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).

Membership our Crohn's forums is free, and will enable you to post on our Crohn's and colitis support message boards, add your favourite Crohn's and colitis weblinks, contribute your personal Crohn's and colitis stories and make comments on articles posted by other members. We also have regular Crohn's, colitis and ostomy chats in our webcam chatrooms where you can meet others and chat about life with IBD or an ostomy.

Crohn's Zone contains a mixture of factual IBD information and personal IBD stories contributed by our members. Our emphasis is on sharing mutual support and affirming that life with Crohn's or colitis can be positive.

Learning to live positively with IBD

Crohn's and colitis are two similar, but separate, conditions of the bowelthat are commonly referred to as inflammatory bowel diseases [IBD].

Both conditions cause painful inflammation and ulceration of the digestive tract. Crohn's inflammation can occur anywhere from the mouth to the anus, and colitis is confined to the large bowel (colon)and rectum.

The symptoms can be very isolating and debiliatating for an IBD sufferer, and include painful abdominal cramping, weight loss, malnutrition, chronic diarrhoea, nausea and fatigue. Treatment can include long-term, strong medications and in some cases surgery. Sufferers can find that IBD and its associated symptoms has a great impact on their confidence and emotional outlook.

Ileostomy & Colostomy

Sore skin can be a real problem when you have a stoma. Keeping your peristomal skin (skin around your stoma) healthy is a great step towards a comfortable and secure stoma experience. Here are my healthy skin tips.

Remember, if you have any persistant skin issues or questions about changing your appliance, consult your hospital's stoma nurse.

Travelling with a stoma
Ileostomy & Colostomy

The following is based on my experiences travelling with an ileostomy. I've had a bag since 2002 and have travelled within Europe, the Caribbean and have had an extended stay in France with it.

Two questions I've been asked about the stoma are Can you fly on an aeroplane with it, and can you go swimming with it? The answer is yes on both counts!
