I've been dealing with Crohn's disease for years (2 surgeries, countless hospitalizations, etc.), then I find out I have a spine issue that requires another surgery ... fine. Then, I have a CT scan done in preparation for the spinal surgery and they find a problem with my common bile duct. It's dilated and my GI doc wants me in his office ASAP for blood work and I have to have an endoscopy with ultrasound right away, as well. Usually indicates problems with the gall bladder, liver, or pancreas.

Sh*t on a slippery stick. I've lived the best life I know how. I am so pissed off right now, I feel like breaking something. Something big. And expensive.

It isn't me I'm worried about, so much. It's the beautiful and witty Mrs. FAX. Damnit to hell and gone. I swear, if I'd known I was going to have this many health problems, I wouldn't have saddled her gorgeous ass with me.

I don't know why I'm posting this ... nowhere else to post, I guess. I don't want a sticky, prayers, or anything. I just want the doctors to leave my ass alone for awhile. Jesus. Enough, already.

Sorry to hear about this setback, Mr. FAX. Try to be happy that they found this as opposed to something bad happening during/after.

Please don't break anything. Me thinks this would upset the beautiful and witty Mrs. FAX to no end.

Take care of yourself, my friend.

Sorry to hear about your struggles, FAX.

Side note:

There are studies and experiments being done on persons with severe (debilitating) asthma and allergies. Typically those being studied are hospitalized from one or the other due to the excessive autoimmune response of the body.

Anyway, in these studies some of the participants are given parasites, such as whipworms. When the body is introduced to an "outside" presence that must be combated it is (apparently, from what they are finding) much less likely to "attack" itself for no reason.

The immune system evolved over time, as did humans, and our immune system is set up in such a way that it allows us to live healthily WITH a certain number of parasitic beings within us.

It is important to note the distinction between the cohabitation of human and parasite allowed by the immune system, and the complete expulsion of parasites from humans by the immune system. Presently, today, in 1st world nations we give medications and pills to fully rid the body of worms and etc.; whereas historically our ancestors, or even recent and contemporary peoples of impoverished nations or areas, do not have the luxury of these types of medications, so the "guests" get to stay since the immune system can only attempt to remove them, but is unable to fully remove them.

Apparently, when left with nothing to attack, kill, maim, or agitate, the immune system starts going after the human body in an overly aggressive manner. Once these friendly and not-so-deadly guests were introduced the participants experiencing the allergy and asthma troubles saw a major decrease in their conditions.

The reason I am mentioning this is, of course, because Crohn's is an autoimmune disease.

So, I was wondering, FAX, would you like to meet me in Mexico to get a fajita and a glass of water?

I lost one of my contacts during a business trip some time ago and had to go to the eye doctor for a new pair (because they were 15 years old and the NAZI whore wouldn't honor my old prescription). Anyway, I do the eye test and she looks at me and says, "Ummm, your cones look a little odd." I said, "What are cones and why do they look odd?" She replied, "Well, I want you to go and see a specialist and they'll run a bunch of tests."

Okay.

"So, is there any treatment to make my cones look less odd?"

"No"

"Then why the f*ck would I do what you suggest?"

"Goodbye, Mr. Donger."

Okay ... I just walked off most of the steam. Started contemplating the fact that, in reality, I'm far luckier than some peeps. I mean, I have arms and legs ... a head that works on occasion. Things could be worse.

My sincere apologies for such a p*ssy thread. I guess this was sort of the last straw from out-of-the-blue and, even though Mr. htismaqe is correct, I honestly feel sorry for the beautiful and witty Mrs. FAX - she deserves a fully-functioning partner - I guess I need to work on that. Anyhow, I've come to think of you guys as friends who wouldn't immediately piss on a peep when he's drowning in self-pity. I mean, most of you guys would wait until he comes up for air first. Ergo, the knee-jerk, pissed-off thread deal.

I did some research and, apparently, this condition can be the result of gall stones, cancer, or other issues - so basically, anything. Since I have Crohn's scarring in the area where the duct is, that's probably the cause ... at least I hope that is the case.

Anyhow, Mr. DaFace, please feel free to delete this thread should you so wish. It's a p*ssy thread created by a guy who should know better. In the meantime, my sincere and heartfelt appreciation goes out to you guys for the good wishes and humor. I don't care what Mr. Iowanian says; you guys are good peeps.

Imagine your self strolling though the field and a HUGE Jack jumps up.

You pin your ears back, turn your cap around and hit the throttle. You're on that Jacks ass cutting through the field at 50 miles an hour.

As you get him in your reach you turn loose of the handle bars, shoulder your shotgun and BLAST his ASS. The dust is flyin, the Jack is cart wheelin and your fourwheeler grinds to a stop.

You sit there and think of your victory in capping his ass.

And then you realize , theres more Jacks out there. Off you go.

Damn, that shit takes you into blissfullness.

I've been dealing with Crohn's disease for years (2 surgeries, countless hospitalizations, etc.), then I find out I have a spine issue that requires another surgery ... fine. Then, I have a CT scan done in preparation for the spinal surgery and they find a problem with my common bile duct. It's dilated and my GI doc wants me in his office ASAP for blood work and I have to have an endoscopy with ultrasound right away, as well. Usually indicates problems with the gall bladder, liver, or pancreas.

Sh*t on a slippery stick. I've lived the best life I know how. I am so pissed off right now, I feel like breaking something. Something big. And expensive.

It isn't me I'm worried about, so much. It's the beautiful and witty Mrs. FAX. Damnit to hell and gone. I swear, if I'd known I was going to have this many health problems, I wouldn't have saddled her gorgeous ass with me.

I don't know why I'm posting this ... nowhere else to post, I guess. I don't want a sticky, prayers, or anything. I just want the doctors to leave my ass alone for awhile. Jesus. Enough, already.

Buy an unworking big screen tv(could probably find one for free on craigslist). Drive to Lee's Summit MO, the paper had an article about a guy that opened a "store" that allows you to throw stuff against walls, the floor, etc. You can take your tv in there and go hog wild. Of course, you could easily do that somewhere in TN, but why risk it? Drive to KC!

We have no choice but to accept whatever comes along the way as long your positive and strong thats what matters in the end. And that is tough, but all we can do is try our best. All you can do is be the best you could be for your wife, and the same goes for her to you. And Im sure you have.

Okay ... I just had the blood drawn for the lab work my GI doc ordered. As I expected (feared?), he's looking for cancer markers in the liver or pancreas. Pancreatic cancer is a no-win deal with a 5-year life expectancy. Bad juju no matter how you cook it. At this point, my hope is that the problem is the result of Crohn's scarring that has blocked the ducts. That's manageable.

I know that many of you do not believe in the effectiveness of thought energies or prayer and are unconvinced that our minds can actually affect our reality or outcomes. I, however, have seen enough in my own experience to know that there is a supernatural or spiritual reality which can be somehow affected by the power of mind.

You can believe me when I tell you that, for the next 24 to 72 hours (the time it takes for the test results to come in), I'll be sending out some serious vibes that the results are negative.

My daughter's GI doctor talked a lot about Crohn's during the initial period of her illness. It turns out that she does not have that diagnosis at this time (some times Crohn's can take up to 10 years to diagnose/develop). But from what I learned, I would not consider surgery as a first option. It is irreversible, and sometimes makes the situation worse. I'd try some of the steroid and other drug treatments first. IMO YMMV, etc, etc.

Well, I can see I was somewhat confusing. I've been on Imuran for 3 years now and in the last 6 months have had 2 hospitalizations. So, it's either step up the drugs to the next level and hope that I don't go into the hospital again or it's remove it and do a combination of things. It's going to have to come out at some point. Just not sure when.

You've asked the right person, Mr. irishjayhawk. Here' the story on Crohn's and surgery ...

As I'm sure you know, Crohn's is an inflammatory disease that can affect the GI tract anywhere from the mouth to the anus (I have it in two spots; the duodenum and terminal ileum). In my case, the Crohn's in the duodenum was so bad, the repeated ulceration and scarring actually closed off the outlet to my stomach, thus requiring surgery since I couldn't eat solid food. I've had two surgeries. The first was done in KC and the second at UCLA. The first wound up being "exploratory" since the surgeon felt uncomfortable doing anything based on what he saw inside. The second was a gastrojejunostomy which involved creating a new outlet to my stomach, looping some small intestine up, connecting it to the new outlet and "voila!!" I could eat burgers. In the process of investigating those options I did extensive research and had the second surgery at UCLA because the cutter I chose was excellent.

Because Crohn's can attack the GI tract anywhere, surgery is not always necessary or even an option. Generally, it's only recommended if 1) The obstruction is extreme or 2) Quality of life is affected. In my case, it was both.

That's why different peeps will tell you different things. Some don't require surgery and others do. Crohn's affected tissue cannot heal properly, so they have to be able to cut around it somehow and that's sometimes not possible - again, depending on locality of disease. If you're even contemplating surgery, talk to a bunch of docs and make sure that it's the right option for you and you are comfortable with your choice of physicians.

It's also important to remember that Crohn's can return even after surgery and often does. They think it's auto-immune, after all. Still, if you can get 20 or 30 years of relatively normal life as the result of a surgery, that may not be a bad deal.

That's what we're hoping for, Mr. htismaqe. Definitely. The cancer concerns are related to all that, though.

I'm guessing that repeated tissue scarring can increase the risk of cancer as well.

But FAX, BREATHING increases your risk of cancer. And more importantly, WORRYING increases your chance of being sick. So don't worry, think positive.

The reason I am mentioning this is, of course, because Crohn's is an autoimmune disease.

So, I was wondering, FAX, would you like to meet me in Mexico to get a fajita and a glass of water?

That's weird. My wife has had lots of intestinal problems some of which have been diagnosed and some of which remain a mystery. She went to Honduras a couple of months ago and while everyone in her group got sick to one degree or another, she said she felt better than she's felt in a long time. It was probably the simpler foods, but who knows maybe it was parasites. :shrug:

Thanks, FAX.

I too have it in the terminal ileum. It's a 7-8 inch stricture. We only found it last October during my first hospital visit. My second one (in April) has kinda brought surgery into the discussion - earlier than I think the doc and I were expecting.

From my understanding, it seems that the surgery at the very least will cut down on the hospital visits. But like you said, it could return. So I'm left wondering if I cut it out how soon it would return.

I'm curious, are you on any immunosuppressants? I'm currently on Imuran but Humeria and Remicade have been tossed around as the "next step". This is my third auto-immune disease/attack/condition. So, it's definitely auto-immune. :p

Lastly, I hope you feel alright. :)

Lastly, I hope you feel alright. :)

The terminal ileum is probably the most common location for Crohn's. I don't know the percentages, but I would guess that well over 50% of patients present with problems there.

As for meds, my GI guy happens to be one of the leading researchers on Crohn's in the country. Purely accidental that he happens to be in Nashville. He leads a research program out of Vanderbilt although he offices in St. Thomas. I mention this because, for the time being, we're sticking with Entocort (in the steroid class) while they finish up human trials on some more advanced auto-immune suppressants. We'll have to see how that goes. Up to now, I've resisted auto-immune therapy because I still have to have surgery on my back and I might need all my extra auto-immunes for that.

If it were me and the Crohn's were restricted to the ileum, I'd think long and hard about surgery. I found out that they're far more skilled at taking stuff out than putting it back in. If, for example, the disease can be managed to some reasonable extent with drugs, I was maintaining my weight, and I could minimize the frequency and intensity of the flare-ups, I'd probably tolerate several hospitalizations a year, take the pain meds, and look at surgery as a last resort - but that's just me. Nevertheless, I wouldn't feel good about encouraging you one way or the other, since it's your ileum.

Also, even though every case is different (one of the primary and major problems in diagnosing and treating the disease) I'll bet that the percentage of re-occurrence is pretty high in peeps who have had surgery. Unfortunately, Crohn's is one of those deals that is very persistent. Were I you, I'd research the living hell out of this prior to making a final decision. I had surgery because it was the ONLY option at that point and, although I would make the same decision now under the same circumstances, I can tell you that, in my case, I exhausted ALL other alternatives before pulling the trigger.

As for being "definitely" auto-immune ... not really. That's the best guess at this point and, although it's probably true, there are still many questions surrounding the true cause of Crohn's.

Thanks for the good wishes ... the same to you, Mr. irishjayhawk. Us Crohn's peeps have to stick together or we'll surely stick separately.

Well, that sucks, Mr. Fax. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.

That's what we're hoping for, Mr. htismaqe. Definitely. The cancer concerns are related to all that, though. For example, apparently, if you have experienced repeated bouts of pancreatitis, your chances of pancreatic cancer increase exponentially. Of course, nobody bothered to ever tell me that before, the bastards. Sometimes doctors can be like evil jack-in-the-boxes.

FAXI bet if you knew about this you wouldn't have had more than one. :hmmm:

Thanks for asking, but we tested for Shampoo Ass Syndrome and the results came back negative, Mr. Iowanian. Thank goodness.

I am compelled to ask, however ... why, pray tell, are you jamming hair gel up your butt? Is that an Iowa thing, are you attempting to achieve the Metrosexual Moon look on weekends, or is this a method for de-dingling the unmentional berries for special occasions?

FAXWas this before or after your Pert experiment?

Sorry to hear, Mr. FAX. If you must break something, try and find something with a Broncos or Raiders logo on it. That will make it both a stress reliever and a productive use of your time.

if it helps, I'll gladly don a Raiders hat and a player to be named later donky jersey (who plays for them now anyway?)

FAX LIVES!!!

For those who care, I thought I'd provide a quick update on all this.

The blood work and the latest endoscopy and ultrasound deal came up negative. Apparently, it's just the Crohn's that is screwing around with my duct work. Very manageable. No cancer or anything else. And, it only cost me an additional $2500 to find out there was no cause for the urgency!!! What a deal!!!

I am now available 24/7 to any person who would like to have a physician tied to a tree and wedgied until they cry. Double Swirlies are included at no extra charge.

That is GREAT news. Very happy that you only suffer from one horrendous illness... err....I mean... Well, you get what I'm saying. :D :p

Seriously, glad to hear it. Best of luck in all matters health-related.

Then I'm taking the bottles and hurling them through my doctor's front window.

Think of it this way: your doctor got to use all those neat but expensive pieces of test equipment on your dime.

When I had to have a colonoscopy, I'm laying on the table waiting to get wheeled in. Just me, the table, and some 1960's era oldies station on the muzak. They wheel me in, I'm listening to the muzak trying not to be scared. As they're putting me under the station plays Sam Cooke doing "Working in a Coal Mine."

Reminded me of God's tremendous sense of humor.

I was OK, btw.

Glad FAX is too.

Thank God everything is good for you FAX.

I remember just a few weeks ago you were saying how life has been good to you and that you felt blessed.

And your sense of humor is still good and strong. Sometimes making others laugh at your situation or jokes makes it all feel better.
