My surgery wasnt even for my "crohns" per say,which is why i fought it for so long. there wasn't too much active inflamation. It was the pain, the constant abcessess and fistula that caused me to get the ostomy, i had none of my intestine removed, i'm just giving my bowels a break as my surgeon would put it, so that i can heal. thanks for the info tho because i've heard alot about
However, donut...I do have fistulas and an rv fistula as well. I hope urs close because this is a sucky thing to deal with on top of an illness.
25 y/o female- crohns disease since 14
Ileostomy pending-very worried
Tried asacol,pentasa,prednisone,remicade,6mp,azasan, no avail
Worst year ever!
