has anyone with cd with multiple bowel resections and all the other junk that goes along with cd also
with a colostomy got any advice for a parastoma hernia operation that i'm facing? i can handle cutting my guts out, sewing up holes, ugi's,lgi's but this is a new one for me. i was 10 when dianosed and murphy's law has followed me around like a lost puppy. i only have a few feet of intestines left and have offered many times to be the experimental intestinal transplant. i have been case studies for duke and baptist/wake forest. just wish there was a complete list of absolutely everything that is connected to, because of, symptom of or has to do with cd so i can check them off as i go. i am greatful and blessed to have had the last 7 years without major complications. i had a permanent colostomy 10 years ago and had a really rough start. developing allergies to the products needed for proper care was horrible and with this next surgery, i don't want that experience again. what can i expect with this type surgery? most likely,the stoma will be moved to another area on my abdomen so they can repair the hernia and heal the muscle wall. how long will it take to heal and i can get back to my normal?
thanks for listening,i don't get to talk much about crohn's.
27 surgeries, 19 fistulas,c-section, endometrios,hysterectomy,arthritis,dry eyes,migraines,kidneys stones,allergies,chronic broncitis,memory not so good, too close to death several times, too many bowel resections to count,
permanent colostomy(rectum removed was harder to deal with than using a baggie the rest of my life) but.......
...... I am no longer a pain in the butt!!!!!!!!
