I hope u are all doing well. Today I was changing my appliance and when I cleaned my stoma I noticed what appeared to look like an ulcer, it had pus discharge coming from it too which worried me. I haven't been great lately but I have so much going on in my life that I boiled it down to all the stress but now I am wondering if its possible the crohns is coming back and affecting my stoma as well. Is that even possible? Last week my dad was diagnosed with cancer but they aren't sure if its in his pancreas or colon and he has deteriorated so fast so I am worried sick about him right now, although he is 80 years old Im still not coping real well with the prospect of losing my father, he is still totally with it but his body is withering away to nothing and its crushing me to see that but I have to try to be strong for him and my mum. I am also struggling with the RA still although the hydro therapy is helping. Sorry to go on but I feel like I need to get it all out as I am falling apart big time, and know I have to keep it together. I am scared to death of crohns coming back to haunt me as well as I have battled it for 22 years now. Surely there has to be a light at the end of the tunnel somewhere. Any input on my stoma problems would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for taking the time to read my post.
Take care everyone
