I live in Florida, so I can't recommend any colorectal surgeons in your area, but I just wanted to wish you all the best in finding one. I'm glad that you're open to having surgery to improve your life. If you've read any of Amey's posts, she also had severe inertia and has been doing really well since her ileostomy surgery. Please keep us posted on how you're doing.
Dx'd w/ Crohn's in '99 at age 28. Proctocolectomy and ileostomy in '06. In remission since surgery.
Pain-free, med-free, and very thankful to be healthy again :)
