presurgical advise, not too sur my surgeries for the CD were both emergencies 1 week apart. I changed my GI after my whole ordeal since I have been flaring on and off with about 2 week intervals between flares since august. He and his nurse practitioner kept telling me it wasnt my CD. They had a ct enterography done and he called me with the results saying the area my CD was active and told me "this means you have Crohn's Disease" I felt like telling him to tell me something I hadn't known for 20 yrs. My surgery is only a temp. ileostomy and once my abscess is gone we are planning to have the resection 6 months from then.. My ct today showed that it is almost gone and all of my fistulas went away. So I would like any advise if anyone has it on resection surgery.
