Bette quality of life after surgery?

Urgency sucks, but apart from that I have never found the number of BMs to make much difference to my life. For years I was going 5-8x a day with the Crohn's, but if that had been literally my only symptom, I would have been absolutely okay with that. But it wasn't my only system. I had fevers, anaemia, and severe pain. I also developed a stricture and had partial obstructions. Was in and out of hospital in the last two years and became completely steroid-dependent. That all told, I managed for the first 10 years of my disease and wasn't really doing any worse than I am now, although my disease was more severe/extensive back then. Unfortunately it took a turn for the worse in 2011 and surgery virtually became an inevitability from that point.I had it, but can't claim to be glad about it. The bowels were designed to work as a whole entity; not be chopped up and rearranged about. It's amazing to me how well they do actually adapt in most cases, but not everyone has perfect health or bowel functioning afterwards. Crohn's folks in remission often have trouble with loose stools, gas, pain, etc. for years after a resection. Dx Crohn's in June 2000. (Yay )Tried: 5-ASAs, azathioprine, 6MP, Remicade, methotrexate, Humira, various diets. 1st surgery 20/2/13 - subtotal colectomy with end ileostomy. 2nd surgery 10/7/15 - ileorectal anastomosis. Stoma reversed and ileum connected to the rectum. Current status: Officially flaring again. The fun never begins.Current meds: 6mg Entocort, 50mg 6MP
