So I'm looking at the option of having a full proctocolectomy in the near future, I have so many questions racing my mind and I just want some closure and I found this place to be informative. Ive had Crohn's for over 11 years and it's always be confined to my rectum and colon if I was to go ahead and have this surgery what are the chances of it moving to the small bowel? Has anyone been in similar situation as mine ? Do you still use Crohn's meds? Was surgery painful? How long did it take for you to recover and do you live a normal life with your ostomy?
I'm sorry but I have so many questions before I decide what to do.
