Hey all,
hope you are having a good day.
My friends just been taken to hospital because she has crohns disease and its gotten really bad, shes had every treatment possible and its just getting worse and worse so they are down to the last option to operate. she is the sweetest and bravest girl that never complains about all of this, right now she is in a huge amount of pain and she is absolutley terrified and very upset about having surgery, she will have to have a bag for the rest of her life and its just not going to be the same for her. she will get through alright and learrn to adjust. She will most likely have the operation on monday. i'm going in tonight and taking her dinner and some presents to try cheer her up. and going to go sit with her everyday.. since i have had so much time off school and im still struggling a lot with all the pain and everythnig going on my mum doesn't want me to miss much school for this to be with her because i will most likely miss more later in the year but if she has the operation during school i'm gona talk to my teachers and organise to stay after school with them to catchup on the lesson that i would miss so i can be with her when she goes in and comes out.

She has been through so much with nothing working to relieve the pain, i really hope this surgery helps and goes well. Please everyone here at healing well pray for my best friend. she needs it right now.

Thanks heaps,
buttercup xx

oh bless her, i know it seems the WORST thing ever to happen. She will love once she gets her head around it. Imagine, she will be able to leave the house without doing the potty scan, she wont have the ' OH MY GOD I GOT TO GO NOW'. Im about to meet a surgeon to have a small bowel resection. Not the same i know.

You will both get through, and well done you for being there to support her. Alot of us (me included) could only wish for someone like you.

So sorry to hear how hard a time your friend is having. Here's hoping that her surgery leads to a long long remission and has her feeling right as rain soon. If you have any questions about ostomies, you might pop over to our ostomie forum and I am sure they can answer any questions about ostomies you may have. Hugs to you both!

So sorry to hear your friend is going through such an awful time.  Hopefully she will feel better after the surgery, adjusts to her new way of life and can enjoy herself.  I am sure having such a supportive friend will help her through it, you will be very important to her recovery.  Good friends are hard to come by but it sounds like she has a something special with you.  Good luck to you both.

Hello buttercup
Wow what a lovely friend you are !!! It's so nice to hear someone being so supportive and I'm guessing that your unwell yourself, as your on here and stated about you being in pain, missing school etc.

I wish I had friends like that !! Unfortunately for me, I seem to have slowly lost them over the last eighteen months, the ones I do have though I really sweet and do their best, but still find it a bit of a puzzle !!! But hey !!! So do I !!! Lol !!!

I'm sending my best wishes and lots of luck both to your friend and you, and I'm sure we'll speak more and get to know each other via here, unless you live in wales !!! Lol !!!
