I was wondering the same things. I guess like steroids, the disease takes a while to really get out of your system. But, I know a lot of my other issues, like rashes on my shins, disappear while I'm in remission, so I know surgery will be tough, but I realize that once the surgery is done and I am healing, it won't be long before those issues are more permanently gone.
My surgery is May 7th... they are removing my entire colon and rectum and I'm getting a permanent ileostomy
