About Graham

Hello, I'm Graham and I live in the Scottish Borders.  I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease when I was a child. At eight-years-old, my journey with Crohn’s disease finally started, after several years of feeling unwell and every test coming back as negative or inconclusive. I was too young to realise what was wrong and so long ago to remember, what I can recall is that I became very ill, I had no energy, no appetite and crippling stomach pain with weekly and daily trips to see my GP.  I have had a subtotal colectomy with ileorectal anastomosis.
