Now, back surgery

Years of symptoms, DX in January. I have had my gallbladder removed due to crohn's disease. I have had colorectal surgery, due to crohn's disease. I think I have the imprint of my ass in my toilet seat, due to crohn's disease. I have had the embarrassment of crapping on side of the road cause I cant make it one freaking mile up the road to a gas station.

Now I get the news after all the back injections failed to work, I have to have spinal fusions. Seems like the crohn's disease has got into two spinal disk, and eat them up.

Sorry to spill the beans but I have been out of work for almost 10 months, and just getting a little bit over bearing.
