been a busy few weeks once again. i just got back from a week in the bush, deer hunting. rain/snow/wind i think i've caught a cold...what a miserable week, but i still had a blast!
anyways...the appt on the 30th...i waited 2hrs in the waiting room just to see the doc for 5mins!! if that even. he told me to come back on nov 5th for an exam. so i had my first ileoscopy then. everything looks healthy from a crohn's perspective, but the opening at the abdominal wall has gotten smaller...so, a stricture has been the cause of my troubles. they gave me a pile of meds, then he went to work "stretching" the hole bigger. ouch, it really hurt. but a week later now, and i feel much much better. i can eat anything again, although i'm sure i'll be staying away from the nuts. i have another appt on the 26th, to see if the stretching holds. (hole doesn't get smaller again) otherwise it'll be knife time. thanks so much for the concern :)
