Colitis And Crohns
My name is Karen, and in 2007 after going through the most painful experiences of my life, bleeding diarrhea, and hemrroid hectomy surgery,wearing a bag, and many hospital visit, I was finally diagnoise with Colitis.
I thought I was going to die from all the pain, and emotional suuering that I had endured.
I spend months in and out of the hospitals, and 5 surgerys later I lost my Large Intestine, and my Colon.
I thought that was it, the bag, the diarrhea, and steroids. I was finally going to have a nice healthy life with my family.
Know here I am 2011, I went to see my specialist, he found some soars in my small intestines,and my pouch and I was told that I am know struck with Crohns.
Can someone please tell me how to deal with this. I am so confused. How is it possible to be hit with 2 diseases within 5 years. The doctor said that I could have had Crohns from the same time I had colitis, but something was missed.
If there is someone who can help me understand this, please let me know.
I had completely change my life style, I had to see a Therapist to help me cope with the whole experience that my family , and I went through. I never eat certain foods, even now.
I lost my large intestine, and colon, all I have is my small, what will happen to know? How do I get throught this.
