Hi all, I am a member of ds, my husband is the one with Chrone's..I bookmarked this group for him...and he never used it. He was diagnosed in March after his first major flareup sent him to the E.R., it runs in his family. He went to the E.R. for the 4th time since then on Sunday, and ended up admitted to the hospital for laprosopic surgery for strictures...they did an intensive CT scan, and found it was too large of an area, and needed full out open surgery. He had about 1 foot of small intestines, 3-4 inches of colon, and his appendix removed. That was Wed. He's having complications now, his incision of 6" may be infected, he had a fever last night, they took an x-ray for pnemonia, and he refuses to get out of bed and walk as his pain is still not under control from the surgery. He's on 15 mg of morphine...and that's a lot! He should be doing much better, and it's getting worse, he's sleeping alot, and doesn't even want to talk to me, or our 6 yr old who's birthday we celebrated Wed! Yeah, I'm pretty stressed and could use any or all supportand advice you may have, and tell me what to expect, what is going to happen, and what I can do. I'm at a loss....HELP!
