I am sooo ready to get the show on the road!
Hoping they can do it laproscopically......    Are they usually able to go in laprascopically vs. open?   
They said they wouldnt know until they get in there.
30 years old.
Single, probably always will be...  In fact, I bet I become "the cat lady" of the neighborhood...  Only thing is, I am not a fan of cats.    
Oh and as an added bonus, I am a FAT girl with Crohns...  
I am getting ready for my first resection....   My mom always said my beauty was on the inside...   sooo what does it mean when my insides are a mess???   Thanks mom!  I bet I inhereted Crohns from your side of the family.  
NO GUTS-NO GLORY!!!    So, once I get my guts removed...   My "Glory" days are over....
 
That about sums me up!

Your right, they won't know until they get in there. Mine was done Lapro and they took 18" out, they did have to make a the belly button incision longer because of the overly immflammed intestine that needed to come out.
I wish you all the best, it's really not that bad. The first day or two afterwards is the worst.

Good luck!
