My sister was diagnosed last year with chrohns disease, never before heard of in our family.
Apart from a mix up with her medication (the GP leaving her on a particular drug for longer than she should have been) there have been no real complications.
However, since feb/march of this year, her feet began to swell and this later spread to her entire legs. The doctors have so far ran every test possible but, at the age of 37 have yet to give her any kind of diagnosis or any hope that this can be reversed.
She has gone from a size 7 shoe to wearing a size 11 mens slipper and walking with the aid of crutches and this does not show any signs of reducing.
Anyone who can offer any ray of hope or any suggestions on this would be gratefully appreciated.
