From what I know of the resections that is normal . My hubby had D for a long while after his surgeries but it subsided. 3 weeks out, that is awesome, it is behind you now.............no pun intended, well maybe just a wee bit.
I just wanted to thank all for your responses. It makes me feel so much better to hear it from people who have gone through with the surgery. In my case, it is just funny because I never had the diarrhea associated with Crohn's Disease. I actually was constantly bloated and constipated due to a massive stricture. Since they removed the stricture and the fistula mass, I have developed the chronic diarrhea. Does it ever end? I just want some time of normalcy, but I guess it just isn't going to be with this disease. I'll get through it as I have gotten through everything else. I'll manage this diarrhea too. Fun, Fun!
Sorry to hear about your surgery and ordeal.
Well I guess in the long run, we will both feel much better. It all just takes time from what I have been reading and from the replies above. Sometimes I like to push it because I'm bored to tears from not working and not being able to do much because I'm chained to a toilet, but I'm so looking forward to getting my life back soon.
Take care and feel free to keep in touch.
It slowed down a little, but is still there probably as much as you. It is annoying. I have to go back to work in a couple of weeks so I'm hoping to be 100% by that time. This was a hell of a surgery.
sorry to hear about that and I thank you for the reply. I'm trying to be optimistic and hope that the surgery gives me many, many years of good health, but, in the back of mind, I always wonder.
