I think I am getting sick from Crohn's all over again. But not sure.
Have had running output no matter what i eat.
Hair is getting thin and uncurly
Stomach aches
Tired all time
Brain fog that won't quit

Waited 4 months for an ultrsound that I won't hear about until Mar 30.

Latest problem, woke up this morning with white spots all over my stoma Bubbles.

Things seem to be going off track big time.

Any advise? Not sure what to do. Sleep more, eat better,(have started eating junk food too much. Help!!
Those things we keep trying to do get easier not because the feat gets easier but our ability to "do" gets better.

Call your GI. It could be anything but maybe getting on meds can help with the situation!

Do you take B12? Have you had blood work run lately? Since you are having problems can you get the March appointment moved up?

Keep us posted

I think you need to call your doctor and ask him what the white spots could be...
Diagnosed w/colonic inertia, obstructive defecation syndrome, anismus, rectocele, and intussusecption
2005-hysterectomy w/pelvic prolapse repairs
2006-sacralcolopopexy
2010-subtotal colectomy, rectopexy, and temporary diverting loop ileostomy. Parastomal hernia discovered in November, so more surgery, probably end ileostomy with relocation of stoma.

Thanks guys. I did call the family Dr. today and hope he has some ideas. Am just feeling so lousy and unable to function very well.

Ohio-Do take monthly iron and B12 shots. Need to do blood work again though.
