I had CD and my rectum was involved. So, after a temporary Ileo and a resection which failed - the CD came right back, my rectum, colon and several feet of small intestine were removed. Once I healed I was ready to get out of the house!! I had been pretty much house bound due to the big "D" and no control that the bag was a blessing in disguise. I do about
everything now. Especially EAT!!!! Oh, how I love to try new foods too.
Diagnosed with CD in 1979, many resections and meds
Perm Ileostomy July 1984 at Cleveland Clinic
Disease free since surgery
