Hey all! Well I finally got a picture taken of my scar as of today, and it looks pretty glorious if you ask me. Just take note of the scar above it...its from when I had my spleen and gallbladder out when I was 6. It's so weird having a second scar, and my surgeon overlapped the two so I literally have a 9 inch scar down my stomach..whew!
I included a link from facebook where my picture is...sorry if you cant see it, I will try to post it again.
Diagnosed: 2003, age 18 (had issues with it since I was 12)
Meds for crohns: Off all meds for 1 month until I heal. Still on 10mg Prednisone, and 20mg Oxycodone every 3 hours, and Oxycontin 5mg every 12 hours.
Other medical issues: Hereditary Spherocytosis (hemolytic anemia) iron deficient anemia, polyarthralgia, ovarian cysts, Migraines
Surgeries: Spleen and gallbladder out at age 6, Tonsils and Adenoids out at age 21. Ileocecal (small bowel) resection on December 13th. Appendectomy during small bowel resection

I wish I could see it but I am not a registered user of facebook. My scar is 2 1/2 months old now and look nice I guess for a scar. My dr was amazing - but I still feel like a gutted fish LOL
