Question on account of those who have had surgery. I regard Crohns of the ileum

I’ve evermore seen surgery as a last resort. But it’s been a year it being so that since I was diagnosed with Crohns and a censure in my ileum.

I’ve tried entirely the immunosurpressants and right now I’m steady Humira and have been for near 6 months. It has helped a in some degree, but I’m still so temperamental to a fate of foods.

The stricture apparently cleared up inside of a month of treatment but crohns is clearly yet alive and well in my intestines

Getting to the point now whither I think surgery is my utmost hope…..my question is for those who gain had surgery on the ileum to what degree helpful was it to you? Are you cheering you did it?

I had my highest surgery in November 2012 and be possible to honestly say that I am gratified that I had it done.
Before surgery I couldn’t ingest anything, was on liquids only beneficial to 10 weeks, had fistulas all through the place, had tried and failed most medications available, was rapidly losing mode of estimating ~ and was in constant agony.

Since that surgery I own had three other ops (but they were to misadventure my Stoma, and sort out couple issues that arose from the previous op, I was very unlucky…) otherwise than that apart from that I have been most distant Crohn’s medications for two years at once, my last scope in September was completely unhampered, I have no pain and doings have about 2-3 bms a day (a big improvement from the 15-20 I had in the sight of surgery,) I am back exercising and am doing my elementary half marathon in March. So yea, I’m glad I did it!

Talk it end with your specialist, they may consider some other tricks up their sleeve. I reliance you find some relief soon.

I had surgery in race 2014. Had one and a moiety feet of distal small intestine sequestered and less than a foot of broad intestine. I have had diarrhea 7 to 20 spells a day since then. Surgery was indispensable thing though bc i had a entire blockage, large cluster of abscesses leaking into visceral region. I feel better now. I happy haven’t straightened out since surgery. I take food something every couple hours, tske vitamins and supplements to interrupt too much wt loss or nutrition loss. Sometimes surgery is necessary. Just behave ur research and get a knowledgeable, creditable surgeon.

Absolutely. Even a tie of weeks after surgery I was in the same manner much better than I had been on the side of the past two years.

The stricture healed? In my case when they lastly diagnosed me the GI said they could try to enjoyment it with drugs, but in his actual feeling once things had got that sad the drugs were unlikely to be in action and that surgery was the most judicious option. I obviously wasn’t thrilled at the archetype of surgery but I’ve not at any time been keen on taking drugs either. But mostly I just wanted it from one to another with.

A couple of things they not at any time told me: I’ll need B12 injections against life, and that I’m at risk of bile salt malabsorption causing diarrohea. The latter hasn’t been a problem I’ve had yet there’s been a few fresh threads here.

Diagnosed in 2005, in release until summer 2011. Waited too long-winded to seek help, they removed the sick ileum and another piping with moderate rupture in intestine wall. Recovery took a space of time. The only problems have been blockages appropriate to food binding to adhesives/cicatrix tissue, which is an inescapable importance of the surgery but far superior than no surgery at all. But not at all flare-ups since then. My surgeon recommended grecian yogurt to supply the intestines with friendly bacteria, so far so virtue.

The important thing is “stitch in time” – don’t wait too long to endeavor help. If you having real ill abdominal pain, don’t wait conducive to it to go away.

I was exactly the sort, seeing surgery as a last selection. The last two years have been horrid for me, I had been in unrelenting flare pretty much the whole time, tried everything, infliximab failed, tried humira what one. also didn’t have any issue so two months ago I unquestionable to have the op.

Had a subtotal colectomy without ceasing 18th dec 2014 and although I’m fit over 4 weeks post op I be able to honestly say I don’t lament a thing, I feel amazing, starting to influence my energy back, I’m not in unbroken pain and I pretty much hold my life back! I was in tears while I made the decision to desire the op but the reality of having a ~te is not as bad as the consideration, it beats living with IBD!
