    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    Do any of you guys use Facebook? And if so, are you fans of a Crohn's Disease page? I decided last night that I wanted to make one but I did a search and there are already several, so if you guys use one already, I'll just use it. Please let me know.

    Hi hippieremodeler,

    Welcome to WebMD Crohn's and Colitis Exchange. It would probably be better for you to start an new discussion (thread) with your question. Just click the Post Now button near the top of the main page and introduce yourself and ask your question. Don't forget to give it a subject title like "Resection Question".

    I've never had a resection but I've heard of peeps who have gone into remission for anywhere from 4 months to 5 years. The recovery seems to be pretty fast too, normally. I'm sorry I couldn't be more help but others will be.

    Good luck and I'm glad to meet you.

    Welcome. This is definitely not facebook but all of us have Crohn's or Colitis.

    What medications have you tried?
