So I have had an mri scan and xray


Which shows I have crohns in the small bowel. I'm booked in for a bowel resection in two weeks, in the mean time I'm being weind off steroids and have to drink fortisip for nurishment. Has anyone else had this procedure if so how did you feel after surgery?

Hi, I have Crohns of rectum, large bowel and 10cms small,. I have been lucky to avoid surgery (2 very close calls for ileostomy tho). I just want to wish you all the best for your surgery and that you can get some relief x

Hi that's great to hear your surgeries have improved your life. I had my op on Sept 4th Fri. So blinking painful. They found I had an absess and a fistula. They removed 40 cm of my small bowel. I've had a couple infections so I'm still on iv antibiotics and on lots of hard painkillers, hopefully I will be discharged tomorrow. I'll let you know if it works out ok in the end for me :)
