Thanks Lil and Indersonu,
You guys are the best... thank you for the support (as always
If I have to do the surgery while I'm in this flare, more than likely it will be the two step and I would need a temp colostomy so I'm hoping to avoid it at this stage. When I'm well which hopefully I can get there without emergency surgery, I will definitely be getting a consult and more than likely I can get a resection in that first surgery.
I'm almost half way through this barium (it really isn't that bad but not wonderful either, just a lot to drink) and I will be leaving for my scan in about
an hour. Thanks for all of your thoughts.
I'll let you know how it goes
