Crohn’s Disease Patient Story: Over 250 hospitalizations
Crohn’s disease is still a challenge to diagnose and treat.
Clinicians have come a long way in diagnosing and treating Crohn’s disease since 1984, when Michael Weiss was first diagnosed. Yet this prolific and severe illness has no known cause or cure.
In this first segment looking into the experience of patients living with chronic and complicated diseases, Michael speaks about his life with Crohn’s (and related complications such as peripheral neuropathy and erythromelalgia) and how he’s learned to cope with the help of other patients.
Michael is the author of Confessions of a Professional Hospital Patient.
