Question: Krones disease

My sister had 40% of her stomach removed, her colon, and gull bladder. The doctor said this was all due to Krones diesease. Is that possible.

Yes, Crohn's can affect all of these organs. Please refer to the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America's website for further information and support at:
