Thanks a whole lot, you don't know how much your comments mean.
I knew there can be scar tissue from resection. And yes, he does know that I do not have the usual symptoms, it has been a topic of conversation at the clinic. I do like him and my GI and do want to have a continued good relationship. I have a follow up appointment with each and will address this as a learning curve and keep the communication and understanding open.
The hospital stay opened my eyes a little more to this disease and I am thankful every day how fortunate I am.
Actually doing very well, just went for a walk outside. Very little pain, very neat and low incision. And hopefully be able to put this aside and get some better sleep.
I've been okay, just can't eat what I used to. We went out last night for my wife's b-day and I'm really paying for it today. Nausea,and major butt hurting "D"
I had a couple fried mushrooms, piece of bread. french onion soup, blackened red snapper with a half rack of ribs and mashed garlic potatoes. I did have two martini's and wonder if i can't tolerate alcohol anymore.
I did not finish my dinner and came home with a doggie bag.
Thanks for asking
Feeling better faster than expected. And looking back, wasn't that bad.
We have 7 acres so can walk outside except it is snowing now. Do use my treadmill at a very slow pace. It feels better to keep moving although the couch looks inviting.
Rider Fan - Wasn't worried about curling, want to be golfing and will be. Have been doing a tournament for Breast Cancer with the same four girls for five years now. It is the end of June and one girl has Crohn's had a resection beginning of May last year.
Ivy, I am going to address my sleep issues. It is not always a problem as I think I function quite well with less sleep than some, cannot go to sleep very early and now if I can sleep in, it's better. Maybe it's anxiety, good or bad. Do dwell on things and have conversations in my head with people over and over. Will get past this.
Curly9878, I had surgery Monday and was out Friday. Another guy in the hospital had his 5th resection on Monday but he was still there Friday. He had had bowel movements I had not, different surgeons.
My husband and I have had our own business for 31 years and run it out of our house. We have slowed down and business is slow so that is not a problem for me.
