I was diagnosed 25 years ago in 1993, I got an acute pain while I was 3 months pregnant, at first they thought it was apendicitis ...was doing ok with just asacol with just light diahrrea for 17 yrs till I got a second perforation in 2011 when I got a temporary ileostomy ...I was on asacol , entocort , xifaxan, Cipro, but I was always scared of the biolůgics so was a mistake not to take them it cost me loosing 2 feet of inflamed small bowel ...

Understood.. it's shocking your docs and surgeon didn't alert you on risk of sbs before the surgery.
Is there no way at all your bowel can tolerate normal food now?

I know I ask and he said there was no way to know beforehand in the Mri I did 5 months prior didnít say how long it was ..., Iíve been eating thatís not the problem is that all comes out mostly undigested because is so short so Iím like consistently hungry,
