    Gayle im so sorry sorry to hear this.

    I do not have this, but my dad does. He had 20% function, they treated him with 8 rounds of cyclophosimide (sp) steroids and iron infusions.

    I know cyc was or is an older crohns drug. Hes regained function to 54% and has remained there for the last 4 years now.

    He doesnt have crohns his is an autommunie thing to do with too much calcium in his blood.

    He has been lucky. I wish you the very best and i hope you too can regain some good function.
