I've had one emergency bowel resection after my bowel perforated. Which resulted in them removing one metre of smal bowel, ileocecal valve and my appendix.

I haven't had any surgeries yet thank god. My brother had an ileostomy (sp?) and I was deeply worried I was going to have to have one too. I cam dangerously close, but luckily the humira, entocort and the cocktail of vitamin and dietary supplements were able to reverse my condition and induce a temporary remission I've had for the last few months.

One emergency surgery due to multiple perforations three months after diagnosis: 30 inches of ileum and cecum removed, plus a nice ileostomy.
Then a second surgery, to be recanalized

Diagnosed in 1983. 5 or 6 resections. 1 fistula repair, 1 anal repair, numerous dilatations for strictures. Another dilatation of 3 strictures to come. 1 temporary ileostomy and reversal. Now approaching with trepidation a proctocolectomy, and permanent ileostomy. Crohn's sucks

I just had my sixth surgery. Removed adhesions throughout as well as a severe stricture below my stoma-resulting in multiple resections and relocating the stoma to my left side. This was a biggie-nine hours. I'm home now and eight weeks later, still having abdominal pain and discomfort.

11+ I've lost count. Some involved my digestive system but other things as well. I have a pre-op for my next surgery next week, but this one isn't Crohn's related.

Does incision and drainage of unconfirmed but possibly crohn's related abscesses count? If so it's over 10.
Otherwise I've only had a cton for a fistula.

None and I've had Crohn's for almost 30 years.

Sadly I believe the last major flare-up has caused more damage than medication can fix.

The first one to take of a little node in my leg (I didn't know it was crohn back then)
The second one was an appendicitis and a resection. That's when I found out I had Crohn
The third one was last monday (after 2 years of the second one). I had an occlusion in the surgery area.

I wasn't diagnosed yet but in 1989 ,I had a surgery for hemorrhoids and another for a fistula. In 1992, I had an abscess drained twice. After it was drained the first time, my wife begged the doctor, with tears in her eyes, to keep me in the hospital longer than they did. They didn't listen and a week and a half later, they had to drain it again. In 1994,I had surgery for a fistula. In 2010, I had a bowel resection. It wasn't directly related but last year I had a rare side effect from Remicade. It was a lesion that wouldn't respond to antibiotic so it had to be removed surgically.

tincho_lavie could you describe the node in your leg please? I think that is what I may have and haven't thought it was Crohns related. What was done to remove? what type of doctor etc please?

Old thread but is interesting since I'm looking down the barrel of a gun at my first real surgery. Had the balloon thing but it didn't work, strictures too bad.
