I am new on Healing well, but very experienced with Crohn's Disease. One more year will be 40 years . I had a sigmoid colostomy for 26 years , and had my colon and rectum removed in 2001, and now an illeostomy. but i am desperately trying to get information concerning severe pain i still have where my rectum (stump) was removed. I have just assumed it is Pudendal Nerve damage, though i have never had anything done to determine the cause. I know, why have i waited so long? Well, to make it as short of an answer as possible, i have had a horrible ten years since the surgery. I have just been in so much shock that until now, i have not been able to get PROPER medical attenion. I have learned that Dr.'s run out of the room when i ask how to get help for this agonizing pain. I am from Georgia ,and have been in contact with Emory Clinic in Atlanta. I am talking with the RN staff that tels you what kind of Dr. i need to see for this particular problem . I am going through with it this time because i am so sick of being in pain. Can anyone direct me to a post that i can get information or someone that has had this same problem , i am not sure if i am on the right place for this . Thanks a bunch!!!
