HI All,
I am 32 weeks pregnant and have massive thrombosed hemorroids.  They need surgery but no one will touch this issue yet bc of the pregnancy.  They are willing to deliver early once lungs in the baby are confirmed developed so I may only have 4-5 weeks to go instead of 8.  My question is, has anyone ever had new irritated hemi's before labor?  I can't even cough without crying in pain and the idea of a day of active labor sounds like hell.  I do have an 8 yr old so its not just the fear of unknown labor, but if they let me elect C section I am tempted just so they can do the hemi surgery right away and have it scheduled.   I guess with regular delivery if area is too swollen or damaged they won't do it while I am in hospital and I really don't want to go back a few weeks later.  Wondering if c section leaves any scar tissue that might cause a problem for any intestinal surgeries down the road.  Have not had any to date.
Just added CIMZIA this yr in place of maintenance drugs.
Diagnosed with CD in 2004.  Currently taking Pentasa, Entocort, probiotics, fish oil, ultra inflamx powder.  Dairy and wheat free diet.  Only struggling now with fevers, everyday!  No surgeries yet.  Tried Mp6-gave me joint pain/tried remicade-gave me pneumonia
