So i met with the surgeon on Monday and have schelduled my next surgery for tuesday the 13th.  They wil be reversing my ostomey bag and then removing part of my colon that now is affected.  I am nervous mainly because of how my last surgery went and how long it took me to recover(6 months).  i cannot afford to be out that long again.  So i am hoping for a quick recovery and only miss about a month of work.  This will be my third surgery in the last 7 months hopefully this one works out and i  can be in remission for a long time.   After the surgery they plan to start me on methotrexate to keep the crohns in remission.
well goodluck and good health to all...

CUBFAN26 sending the best wishes ever to you. I hope this surgery leads to a long long remission. Do let us know how you are doing afterwards.

*On another note, looks like your signature got too long again, can you fix it?* Thanks!
