They've yet to find it in my small intestines, but I have classic Crohn's symptoms - fistulas, abscesses, skin tags, fissures, etc.......
Anyone else battling Crohn's in the rectum and/or sigmoid?
My surgeon had the "surgery" talk with me on Thursday. Not that it's anytime soon, but he wanted to discuss it with me the reasons to do surgery since I am failing major drugs now and have become dependent upon steroids and yet I have to be off steroids for other medical reasons. This of course means an automatic ostomy of sorts. I don't qualify for a J Pouch or Kock Pouch....
Would love to chat about your location of your disease and what drugs you have done. From the get go I was informed that with Crohn's in the location in which it is, it is the most painful AND the hardest to control. Do you have the same issues?
