    HEllo,

     

    Typically in this day and age where there is so much more known about Crohn's disease and how to treat it people with CD live decent lives. There are also different stages or types of CD - mild, moderate, and severe. People with mild to moderate Crohn's find that food modifications, medications, and regular doctor's visits help to keep it under control. People with severe CD may find that they have to have surgery one or more times to remove parts of the affected intestines. Any time surgery with a general anasthesia is involved there are higher risks.

     

    So, I can't really give you a yes or no answer. If you are affected with severe CD you need to be seeing a good GI doctor and talking to them about your concerns and fears. They are the best person to give you the best informationo about your questions.
