Have you had surgery recently?

A couple weeks ago I noticed that there was a spike in surgeries being scheduled or done. So, if you have had surgery recently my questions are:
1. What kind of surgery did you have
2. Were you advised to stop medications prior to surgery
3. Did you develop any infections or complications after surgery

Hi Afidz
How are you doing? Can't believe it's 6 months since I had mine! I guess that's relatively recently?
1. Ileocaecal resection and partial cystectomy ( to remove fistula to bladder )
2. Yes, they took me off Aza which was all I was on prior to the op
3. I developed a chest infection a couple of days after which cleared up with antibiotics. Other than that, no problems.

Bowel resection plus removal of adhesions and abscesses and creation of ileostomy - Nov 23 2012.
Took me off Remicade well beforehand and fattened me up with TPN for a few months!!!!
Developed wound infection post surgery and abscess under my liver. My wound has only just healed 4 months later and fortunately the abscess under my liver has resolved.
Since then have been weaning off prednisone. Down to 5mg now. Woohoo.

1. Had a section of my colon removed and two fistulas, one in my bladder and one from my large to my small intestine.
2. Yes, everything. Asa, Humira, birth control and vitamins
3. No complications, but I did have a nasty bout with nausea for a few weeks afterword.
