OK here is my story.
I have had Crohns for 24+ years. Mainly in sigmoid colon and down through rectum.
about 4 years ago they removed sigmoid colon, rectum, and anus. It has been a godsend not having to deal with the power diareaha, excruciating pain, etc..
But now I am having mild to moderate cramping, mild to moderate pain in both LRQ and LLQ.
Not anywhere what is was back before I became a new and improved front exhaust model.
I am wondering if I should be more worried then I am if this is my crohns could it be more severe then I am thinking it is. Since I don't have the parts that were causing the biting the towel to keep from screaming pain when I was on the pot. Can the reoccurrence be more "mild symptoms" then before? I am getting ready for my yearly follow up with my GI in a few weeks and wondering if I should be more assertive in asking for tests.
If anyone has BTDT and offers your experience I am grateful.
