Hello everyone, I am new to this site, I am a regular of the Crohns site. I have a 17 year old son who has crohns. He has had crohns now for 6 1/2 years. He just had surgery 4 weeks ago where they put in an ileostomy bag on, To give the diseased crohns area time to calm down and infection in his body to get well. They are planning a resection i guess in the next few months, no date set. Tyler is doing great, enjoying eating with NO pain. He has adjusted well to the idea of his "bag", he doesnt like it, but he does have a good attitude considering what he has been through. The surgeon said his crohns was all contained in one area which is good, so when they reconnect his intestine they plan to cut out approxiamtly about 8 to 10 inches of his terminal ileum.
My concerns are.....Is he going to feel as good after the resection as he does now, when it comes to eating? He is so enjoying eating with no pain and no worries that he is going to be hurting later on.
Any output out there concerning this issue?
