I have just recently had a temporary ileostomy due to my crohn's. I have had it for 20 years since I was 8. I went into the hospital with fevers and headaches and yes my belly hurt but i have been flaring since August so I thought nothing of it. They did a CT scan which showed my ileum was perforaating and air was filling between my layers of tissue. The next day Feb 12 they had me have an intestine resection, they located a fistula removed that and since in the area they took my appendix as well. I was doing well but not putting out enough stool even with enemas. I have had more constipation issues than diarrhea with my CD. I started up with fevers again soon after the 1st surgery so on the 19th of feb. I yet again went into surgery. This time they drained 500cc of an abscess as well as taking 1/3 of my large intestine making me have a temporary ileostomy. Since I went into the hospital very ill I had more complications than most especially going in healthy. After all that my wound got infected so I have a wound vac, I had about 9 ct scans while in the hospital they drained another abscess while I was sedated in a ct scan. I got discharged march 6th in the early evening only to go back in the next day and be readmitted. I was discharged on the 15th and still run low grade fevers and on lots of meds.
