Ive been pretty much unwell with constant, unremitting Crohn’s for 15 years. I’m due to have an illeostomy in approximately 4 weeks time, I’ve been in a steroid dependant flare up for 17 months (each surgery attempt thus far has needed rescheduling due to infection, high temperature etc) I have become very weak during this lengthy stretch of bad health, I have constant fatigue severe enough to render me bedbound many days, my general health is poor and I’m at a very low ebb to be honest. I’m concerned about the impact on my recovery from what my surgeon keeps reminding me is “major surgery” I guess my question is more of an open - what will it be like- to anyone who has been through this surgery, has anyone gone into this surgery so wholly run down and physically weak, will it protract my recovery, indeed will I feel better after surgery than I do now! I’m so worried I guess I’d just like to hear from anyone who’s had this kind of operation and what to expect in its aftermath....thanks in advance 💟
