I am seeing the surgeon today for a fissure and I think possibly a fistula. I absolutely dread this. Any ideas on what he will want to do? Even toilet paper hurts these days, so I am freaking out that he will want to do the mini-scope thing in his office. sorry, I guess I am just nervous and needed to vent and try to relax. I just cant stand this pain anymore, I HATE taking any kind of pain meds but I have already taken 3 norco today and I am still very uncomfortable. Again sorry, but thanks for listening to me. I just don't know what to expect.
I am a 29 yo female, Dx with UC in 97, hospital stays monthly, tons of blood transfusion, bowel rest on TPN, prednisone, asacol, sulfa, imuran, VSP
99- multiple failed remicade treatments, more hospital stays
finally in 2001 had enough and had total colectomy (j-pouch) surgery, 1st step was good, then the reversal was not such a breeze, got peritinitis which was awful!!
the rest of 2001-2006 were amazing!
now having problems again- they are thinking Crohns.- have been on Humira with no luck
