Hi, I had my ileocolectomy on January 9th and my last period was in December.  I haven't gotten it since then.  Has anyone else experienced this after their operation.  Is this something I should be worried about? sad

I know surgery (and stress) can really mess up your cycle. If you are prone to cramping, you could have more pain for the first few cycles.

I went 3 1/2 months with no period after my resection. Surgery can really screw up your system.
Dx with Crohn's in 1997 after 5 years of worsening symptoms.
Resection a few months after dx after 1 month on TPN and IV steroids.
Resection October 2008.
Also have severe asthma.

Tried: Pentasa, Cholestyramine

Presently taking: now on 25 mg prednisone, probiotics, calcium, B12.
For asthma I take Advair 500, singulair, arieus

I've had surgery 2 times and both times I went over 4 months without a period.
