I'm new to the site, and I've had crohn's for 8 years. I'm sixteen and just had surgery 8 weeks ago due to a really bad flare up and a stricture. Just wondering if anyone else has had or considered surgery for their crohn's? I'm still very nervous about everything that's happened and about the effects of the surgery and would love to hear anyone else's stories!
ive had surgery for my crohns 3 years ago i have a colostomy, it's was hard at first but now it's amazing I really don't know what I'd do without it!
it's stressful sometimes knowing that I'm different from everyone else but oh we'll, I also had surgery in December there to get my colon removed witch takes away all my options of gettin my bag reversed later on in life x
