Here it goes again!!!


Some of you will be familiar with me and the problems I had getting my diagnosis then having to have surgery for crohn's.

Anyway, this is just abit of an update.

I had a follow up appointment today, my team are very worried at the moment. I'm losing weight again and got some symptoms going on. Anyway they have decided that depending on the results of my bloods I had done today and if I lose anymore weight from now til I go back (in 4 weeks time) then I am to have more barium studies done, and if they show narrowing of my small bowel again then they are putting me straight forward for more surgery!

I am having to take fortisip now, which is a nutrient supplement.

I just have to shake my head at times in disbelief. The fact that I am still having problems. I am not walking around being miserable, because there is no point, I just have to accept it and get on with my life the best I can.

So, I'm being myself, looking after my family, working and putting any worries to the back of mind, because at the end of the day the more I worry I will make things worse, so there is no point.

Hopefully this message will help others to accept what they have and continue to live their life. You can't take it away, so why let it drag a person down?
