I've already had 3 abdominal surgeries within a 10 month period. I had 18 inches of smallbowel at the ileum, 6 inches at sigmoid, appendectomy, hysterectomy, gallbladder removed, and surgery for adhesions after all that. I thought I had weathered the surgery storm, but now I don't know. Things were looking so good the last 2 months on the cimzia that's why I'm just baffled. I've got to get in to see my GI and probably go through all the CT,bloodwork, etc.. Oh and by the way in between all the major surgeries I've had 2 surgeries for pancreas problems done by ERCP. I'm just honestly confused and let down to be in this situation again!! I live in a relatively small town in north west florida and my GI regularly sends me to New Orleans when my case gets too complicated. It's going to be hard to do now that I'm a single mom. Thanks for letting me rant!!!
