Hi all, sorry I haven't been on here in a while, I had my ileostomy reversed on 7th April the op went well but the following week had to go back to theatre as i had peritonitis and had to have the hole repaired finally got over that then 21st april the drain started filling with poop the surgeon didn't want to operate again so i was put on TPN for 18 days to rest the bowel thankfully by doing this the hole healed and I came home. Ater being home for 4 days I ended up back in hospital with an infection and given I.V antibiotics for 7 days I came home last thursday all seems well although i am still having crampy aches in the lower part of my belly is this normal when im 5 weeks post op?Im not on any meds for my crohns just yet and my follow up appointment isn't till 7th June thanks for any info Bev x
