on my family. I think that's the one big thing that is the most depressing. Oh, I've been so bad I really would rather have died, but knowing that I'm causing my family so much pain by having to watch me suffer is the most unbearable part of this horrible disorder. I'm obstructed.....again......and
am looking at the possibility of another surgery...my 10th belly surgery....in the near future. I'm sure thankful I found a great surgeon this last time since he's taking down the adhesions both outside and inside the intestine. I'm sure this time he'll shorten the small intestine again and join it to the rectum. I have three inches left and that's plenty of room to do another anastimosis. Well, it's been 18 months since the last surgery....18 months of normalcy! I'll be hopeful for another 18 months this
