Im 40 something female from the NorthEast US. I was diagnosed 6 years ago through colonoscopy and cat scans. I didn't take my disease very seriously back then and it's only been about 8 months that Ive had to come to the reality that my life has changed. I've lost 30 lbs, and have had pnemonia and an infection in my transverse intestine from divir, which forced me to start taking my disease seriously. I can no longer eat more than a small portion of low residue food at a time without getting very ill, as a result of this Im having my sigmoid removed in July in hope that I can be sick less..I have pockets and signs of infection in all parts of my large intestine, although my surgeon promises me they will stick to one portion for this surgery, but gage the time left for the rest. Im glad to have found this place and happy to find people who have had surgery to bounce questions off of and also happy to share any knowledge that I can through my own trial that may help someone else..Cheers!
