OK sorry I haven't kept you guys up to speed but I gotta tell you I am slowly losing what little mind I have left! I have been off work since Thanksgiving. I ticked off my surgeon so I got a letter telling me to finda new one! ( actually I made the woman who answers the phone mad and I lost!)
Moving on... saw GI he did colonoscopy,flex sig,upper GI, and SBFT. He told me could either reconnect me or do another stoma. Found new surgeon he wanted a Barium enema before reconnecting me I believe to determine how much sigmoid colon was left.(they call me todayand say, results showed a possible mass in the rectum, can I come in tomorrow for pre surgery physical.... click)
Isn't that something they would have found with the flex sig? Could that maybe be scar tissue from the rectal crohns I had? My mind is racing and I hate this.
Still don't know if I will have a job when this is all over. I am gonna go past the 12 weeks of FMLA.
I am hoping surgery will be next week. Was looking forwardto "pooping like a big girl " again! My co workers think they are funny!
 Have any ideas???

I don't really have any advice for you except to offer you some hugs. You really are at the mercy of the office staff and sometimes they just are not the easiest. (((HUGS)))

Cleo - Long time no hear from you! I'm so sorry that you are going through all this turmoil. It's possible that the mass in the rectum is more in the intestinal wall thereby looking somewhat normal during the flexible sigmoidoscopy. It could be that it is scar tissue from previous inflammation. Unfortunately, until they get in there, it's a wait see situation. Please keep us informed on how all this plays out. Otherwise I'll be sitting here worrying about you.
