I am just medicallu unlucky and lucky I guess. Unlucky since I seem to have complications with everything. My first issue with constipation started when I was 5 just after getting over the chicken pox. My joints started 1 yr before I was Dx with CD. I had an inguinal hernia operation when I was 8 (spring before CD Dx). Cd diagnosed in 87 almost died in the hospital but luckily no Sx was needed at the time. Due to Imuran my gall bladder nearly burst but was giving me symptoms of menengitis (I was in college at the time) I missed 1 month of my Sr year and made everything up and still graduated on time. I got married 2 months out of college and it was an abusiove relationship. I met Eric online (he is my current husband) he is absolutely wodnerful, he gets grossed out by medical stuff but was there everyday while I was in the hospital this past year. Our 2nd anniv is coming up next month :)
I am lucky since I had great durgeons and I am alive, I find I still have to take pain meds almost daily. I got a job offer today soI moved up my appt with my surgeon to this Wed. I hope he can help me out with the pain I still have, it may be more adhesions. My GI called in questran for me today and I will pick that up tomorrow and see how that works for me. My biggest concern at my new job is bathroom, I am one who could never have a BM except at my house, my parents, or grandparents. Now I cant help but to go other places so my biggest fear is the stench that comes out of me. I cant drink peroxide to make it better and no M9 drops either. I need tips for that now that I dont have a bag and cannot mask the odor with those items
