I’m not sure what to expect from this site. Looking mostly to connect with people who also have ostomy/Crohn’s disease.

A little about me. I was diagnosed with UC in January 2003. In March of 2003 I had an ileostomy placed after 40ish days in the hospital and being non-responsive to drug therapy. Following surgery I had a full remission until July 2005 during late pregnancy. After I gave birth and lots of tests my dx was changed to Crohn’s Disease. I’ve had surgery about every 3 years since 2012 to repair hernia and revise my ileostomy and to resection my small intestine after rupture due to necrosis.

Despite all of that I am still working full time, although I’ll admit there’s an extra layer of fatigue for me with the pandemic and being in an active flare currently. (Insomnia from prednisone is not helping this fatigue situation at all either I can tell you that my friends!) My teen is growing like a weed and healthy so I’m grateful for that as well.
