My mom Is fighting right now for her life , she was sent in for a surgery to have the crohns's removed from her intestines and her gald blatter removed , and she ended up need a colostomy bag .. Well they noticed that the disease is like a wild animal it cuts off the blood circulation from the intestines it strangles the organs and it's a very expensive disease. Then two days later they had to take her back in to do the same surgery again because the crohns's had twisted up her intestines and there was no blood flowing and my mom was in serious pain they have her on a pain medication that is stronger then morfine . When they opened her back up she had bowel all over her insides so they had to clean her out, they noticed there was a leak in the intestines and bowels is toxic so it caused her to have international pain.. They cleaned the Bowles off of her insides and cut out the dead intestines and redid the colostomy bag so that her bowels can void the body properly.. My mom has to have therapy to help her walk again she's just like a baby all over again.. This so much for me to take in I've been so stressed I'm on fmla on my job money is so limited right now.
