I just got home from the hospital, had a ileocolectomy. Developed five abscesses from the surgery and was on antibiotics in an iv(picc line actually) for three weeks exactly and then sent home. They did a ct a week before I went home and saw that the abscesses were still there but smaller. Well before I was discharged they didnt do another ct just to make sure they were gone. I am worried they can come back or grow back. What are the chances? Has this happened to anyone or does anyone know anything about them. Please Help I am so worried they will come back since I stopped the antibiotics and I will have to have surgery again.
 
 
--So stressed out from this disease.
 
 
currently on no crohns meds since the surgery.
didnt go home with oral antibiotics. just pain meds.

this is beca123, i changed my name.
20 yr old female, dx'd in 02, struggled for a year with controlling this retarded disease. Finally got on Remicade(miracle drug for me-at the time) was in remission until summer of 09. Remicade stopped working, switched to Humira. Had my first surgery, half the colon and some of the small intestine removed. developed abscesses. it was messy. Currently on no Crohns meds, going to probably start the Humira again soon.
