I have been swelling since January and just noticed I'm getting stretch marks.
Prednisone didn't help and Humira hasn't either so far. Went to dr Tues and he thinks it may be a partial blockage where my resection is connected. Going for a colonoscopy Wed. If it is a blockage he said he can probably stretch it. If it is from my crohn's he wants to remove the rest of my colon and give me a permanent ileostomy. I'm scared. Anyone have a blockage stretched? The really scary part is the possibility of an ileostomy.
Dx Crohn's in 1998. Unable to tolerate most meds. Subtotal Colectomy last September. Currently on Humira and prednisone.
