hi guys. well im from Aus & i found this sight thro a friend. im not sure how dif things r ova here but it all looks pretty much the same.
Am jst after some advice. im 28 & iv had Crohns for 10yrs. Iv been thro the wars with this hidious disease. I currently have a Stoma/Iliostomy bag which was put in about 8 months ago. my damaged/diseased part is my colone so im told. iv had excrusiating pain for yrs n yrs but after my last surgery it did go away! but the last 2 months it has returned & im told i shld have my colone out. Has any1 had their colone removed?? was it sucessful? im so afirad il go thro more horrific surgery jst to have it flair back up in my small intestines.. im so very scared & stressed as iv tried all medications n treaments n havnt responded to anything. Am temped to get more surgey done but am petrified as this will be big surgery & il have a permanent bag. i also bleed and get alot of pain around my bum so i thought if my colon is removed i shldnt have that prroblem anymore?
 
Thanks for listening, wld appreciate some advice

hey juls.. sounds scary i know but the chanceare just as good you will have problems in the small bowel anyway whether you have the operation or not. just be sure its what YOU want and not just what a dr wants. good luck
