During the surgery did they remove the illical valve? I have had 2 resections and it still took time to get back to "normal". Surgery just removes the section that is inflammed, it does not cure this disease. I am on Remicade and there are still times that I have issues with this disease even with no active signs of it in the CT scans or small bowel series. You can email me if you have any direct questions you would like answered. Good luck in finding the answers you are looking for.
We can respond to irritation with a smile instead of scowl, or by giving warm praise instead of icy indifference. By our being understanding instead of abrupt, others, in turn, may decide to hold on a little longer rather than to give way. Love, patience, and meekness can be just as contagious as rudeness and crudeness.
