Hi! I'm Cleo,(short for Cleopatra, queen of DENIAL!) I am a mod. on the CD board and told Peter since I'm readin here I would mederate here to. I recognize a few peeps from the CD board. I figgered I'd intoduce myself and give you the short version of my probs. I'd like to hear yours too!
After 4 years of hospital visits and pain I was finally Dx after I obstructed. I had surgery to do damage control , remove the sigmoid and untie my small intestiine.(it was wrapped around an ovary and tied in a knot!) Damage was from all my past flares(you know ,the ones I had when it was all in my head!)
I had a total of 17 fistulas,1 fissure and a perforated abcess at the time of surgery.
My surgey was in JAN.and I now have a colostomy. I had a very hard time at first. Startin to adjust.
well that's the mini version! Hope to get to know you all better!
