Hi everyone. Think a few people may know me. Had bowel resection due to abscess that had formed after a nastY diverticulitis infection that put me in hospital. Had the abscess for a while before a great surgeon realised what was wrong. Had bowel resection, he said it was a mess in there with phlegmon( inflammatory mass) as well as abscess, stuck to my bladder etc. . Had iliostomy bag for 3 months while everything healed. Felt fine, coped ok, apart from dehydration and low iron. Has successful reversal in August. Seemed to be doing ok, but i felt like it was taking a long time to get back to,normal, and eventually got the urinary symptoms back i had when i had abscess. I just got on with things , and definitely felt better than before, however, now i feel exactly the same as i did when i had the abscess. Feverish, but no actual fever, pain , generally feeling really lousy. Surgeon sending me for ct scan tomorrow. Can an abscess come back? . I cant remember what he said exactly, few weeks ago when I saw him , my memory is not good.l. Ive got a vague memory of him saying maybe inflammation? has this happened to anyone else?
