My mother-in-law suffers from crohnes diease, she had a infection of the blood which caused a massive amount of weight loss and she had to have a tube implanted in her chest to give her meds through for about 3wks. Her doctors stated it wasn't related to crohnes but and unknown cause. Could anyone explain this. It also should be noted that she suffers from chronic diarehha. And this all came about suddenly. Please can someone offer advice. Thank you for your time in this matter
