Thank you so much everyone. I'm kinda afraid of the illeostomy thing, and I don't know if it would resolve the IBS or the pain either. My Crohn's is throughout my large and small intestine and rectum. So much is bad that I have been told that ostomy surgery is not an option for me right now. I take purinethol and colazol for my Crohn's but have just recently gotten off a 2 year course of steroids (Entocort and prednisone), as well as having tried Asacol, Pentasa, every IBS drug in the book without success.
