NEWS UPDATE - May 2008
The short story is...
I have had Crohn's disease for 12 years and 10 years ago I had bowel surgery to remove a nasty bit, all went well.... BUT... This year on Feb the 14th I was woken up in the wee hours of the morning with a huge amount of pain, I thought to myself 'ho ho I know what this is - blocked bowel - very very painful).
So I called an ambulance and ended up spending a looooong month in hospital.. I had 2 major surgeries - one of which was life saving. I am now on a long long road to recovery.
I lost nearly 3 stone in hospital & for the 1st time in my life I was classed as underweight, so I m enjoying eating my way back... LOL!!
The crappy (literally) thing is - due to the 2nd emergancy surgery I had to have a stoma (Ileostomy) - so I have to wear a lovely and very sexy 'bag' which is on the right side of my body & collects my umm 'output' and is uncomfortable :(.. and oh so attractive!! Thankfully its not permanant, they say they will reverse it in a year..arghhh. A YEEAAR!!
I also had problems with my surgery wound, which is about 14 cm long and goes straight down and passes through my belly button (which I lost :( yes kids I have no belly button) the wound went all manky and gaped it was a huge gaping wound, its closing up but is still very ikk.
Anyhoo, thats about the long and the short of it.
Wish me luck ;)
