Having a hard time
HI , i was diagnosed with crohns 2 years ago when i had a severe abscess somewhere in there, 3 spots with legions and had to have surgery . After being on prednisone for 6 months and immuran now for almost 2 years . I only had a lil flare .
But now for the last 3 weeks, the spot where they cut open the abcess (it was just barely inside from rectum)
hurts every day . Anything that would cause me to flex the muscles we have at the end , like if i sneeze , or end peeing etc hurts me .
It feels raw and like something is stuck there but there is not , the last time i had this , they did a colonosopy but said they found nothing , although i could feel the pain .
It feels like the abcess i had back then created a small hole or tunnel where stuff gets in and i think thats what makes me hurt so bad there.
when the food moves through me in last 3 weeks, even tho i got the bad pain at end, it doesnt seem to hurt really whe moving through me. But ive noticed that im not digesting stuff very well at all anymore , see alot of food in toilet , and stool is back to being totally unformed, even tho i take the anti diarea pills daily.
My doctor for crohns really has not been very helpful , they hardly ever see me , and tell me nothing , ive gained more knowledge off the internet. its like she dont care.
I was just wondering, has anyone experienced anything like this? where they have a pain that feels raw and very sore and swollen just barely inside , around the muscles at end . its just odd because its the exact spot where i had the severe abcess about 2 years ago and had surgery there.
I just dont feel good, no energy , no motivation, i just want to lay in bed all day , fingernails starting to get lots of ridges in them, i was told that was due to lack of iron , is it safe for me to just buy a supplement pill for vitamins as a crohns person? Or is there only a certain type i should get, not the cheap walmart vitamins?
my email is krichel @ mchsi.com if anyone out there wants to email me , i really dont got nobody to talk to bout this.
