Hello Debbiedo.

Thanks for your post, even though it is a bit depressing and disappointing to hear that the NHS contnues to let people down in this way. There seems to be no consideration for how people feel when these procedures are cancelled at the last minute and it appears to becoming the norm rather than an exception. Let's hope that your next appointment is honoured and your operation goes well.

Best wishes

Bill

I agree with Bill, it's difficult to have such a let down after patiently waiting for the date to arrive. September isn't too far off though and I too hope everything goes through.

Debbiedo--

So sorry for the delay.

I had rectal stump bleeding too, colon removed due to cancer.  Horrid.

Keep the faith, let us know how it went!  We're all on your side!

HI, 

  My name is Marsha, and when I had my ileostomy done more than 50+ years ago ( I was 15) due to Ulcerative Colitis, they deliberately left in the rectal stump, hoping that it would heal.   After 4 years, it still had active disease, bled all the time, and I was sick of all the pain, medications and treatments.   I had to fight with my doctors and parents, but I opted for removal of the rest of the rectum.   The thought was that " some day", Imight be able to be hooked up.   But after 7 years with the disease,  I knew I would never take the chance of being reconnected.    I'm sorry  you've had to wait so long for this part of the surgery.   Have patience..... Eventually, the surgery will be done, and you'll be finished with the disease...  inn that area at least. 

   You do know that Crohn's can re occur anywhere in the digestive track.   My ex husband had Crohn's and an ileostomy, but still had attacks, in the upper areas of the intestin.   One of my sons has Crohn's and the other UC>   Both have been maintained on medications, and haven't required surgery.  

I do wish you the best of luck.  Hang in there. 

Marsha
