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

crohnielass~glad you are home!! Hang in there...even though you are 5 weeks post-op, you've had complications, which have slowed all that down:( Are you running a fever? Are you on a soft/low residue diet?

Make sure your doc puts you on maintenance meds...it's not worth letting the disease get ahead of you again!

take it easy, but call the doc if your pain increases, and if you start a fever go immediately!!!
