Awww thanks Paddy!

Matt continues to do well and I too hope that his surgery days over for a very, very long time. So long in fact that the cure comes first!

He has just had his monthly bloods done and all remains on a steady and boring course, no asterick!...

Enjoyin' the mundane and hopin' it stays that way!

Well following on from Matt's Vit D deficiency...

I told him the results and we commenced him on Ostelin 2 daily and repeat the levels in a month. Because the GP had spoken with me he didn't need see him.

So come last Sunday Matt says to me when is his appointment to see the doc. I say "huh"...I thought we discussed you not needing to go and he says well he didn't think it would hurt to have things checked out, waving his hand over his abdomen. Okaaaaaay, he said he is fine but it has my mind ticking over so I make the appointment and off he goes to the GP yesterday, well it turns out he has noticed some swelling on the left lower end of his incision over the past couple of weeks. He has no pain and it is only appears occassionally but now the thought is he has an incisional hernia and it sure sounds like that to me too.

He goes for an ultrasound in the morning. I know it isn't huge in the scheme of things but I just wish he didn't need to have further surgery at some point.

I'm fed up and sick of it, not for me but him.

Hi DustyKat,
Those sneaky young men--good thing you trusted your momma instincts and made the appointment for him. They try not to worry us and then they end up worrying us more!

You and your kids need/deserve a longer break from dealing with Crohn's related issues.

Sending hugs and the hope that it is just a minor hernia.

Dusty. Hope it all goes well for Matt. Sorry to hear that he is having even the hint of a problem. He can never say he isn't lucky with a mom like you. Good luck to you both and I hope this is just a little bump in the road.

Dusty I'm very sorry to hear that, and lets hope it's not a hernia! But....hernias arent that big of a surgery (compared I may say to our other chronie surgeries)...and hopefully they can nip it in the bud with a belt or something else to delay any need for surgery in the near future. I'm sooo sorry, as a mum you must be a basket case!

oh no Dusty hopefully they can get rid of that hernia asap. I know I have a tendency to let symptoms slide until they get real bad and then I worry my parents sick about it when I finally come clean. You must be so worried for Matt! I hope they can get it taken care of efficiently and easily so he can be back to enjoying full remission without any complications.
