Well finally after 8 months of worrying today I had surgery.. I have a seton now and he also cut into the abscess a bit more.. I have packing in it now.. I see him tomorrow and he said that he will probably take out the packing and it will not need repacking.. He also told me that my j pouch looked great and safe!! I am on a 5 day course of flagyl.. I am feeling ok very tired and really nauseous.. I am a little nervous for that first bowel movement any advice for me?
