Yesterday when it comes to Crohn's treatment I had to visit the hospital and see a surgeon about what I can expect to happen and managed to get some explanation on what's going on. To cut a long story short here the damage has been located at where the small intestines connects to the colon and is also connecting itself wrongly by a fistula to a separate part of the colon. Only way this can be treated is the removal of said parts. I also know for certain now as well that the crohn's is active around the back so to speak.
I guess I don't quite know how to feel about such a development. All of a sudden I have an answer at why some of the IC side of things has crept into my life and also that it isn't any of my own doing because of stress or something. Also when it comes to the treatment and operation I feel like I can deal with this side much better then I did late last year when the option was 1st brought up. I think that I'm dealing with the symptoms better and in myself mostly feeling better has helped a great deal. But I knowing that the colon is part responsible for this is a bit of a worry. As is knowing that I'll be losing part of it as well.
I can't expect anyone here to say what's going on and what I can expect after all this is sorted but it has made me wonder. While I can manage at this stage, incontinence may be something it seems could become more then just a being ill at the moment side to life. Of course it's too early to say right now but while I will always hope for the best outcome I guess I can't be counted out ether from what I now know.
I do know one thing at lest. I will and must do everything I can to stay strong and get through this nasty period I've had. Whatever the outcome, I want my life back for sure!
