Operation Success

Hey, I haven't been on site for several months. I recently had the rectal stump and anus removed and am doing amazingly well. There was no sign of cancer and the final news was all the problems were related to Crohns. I just wish I had done this sooner. I won't was painful, but my hospital stay was only 5 days and the pain became quite manageable within 3 weeks. I can look to future with a great deal of relief and I am very optomistic about my health. I am really glad to be a part of this website and to know that there are people out there that I can be open and honest with. Thank you.
