It was unbearable, at first I thought the pain would pass like it had done all those months before, but this time it was different...

The pain was so unbearable it jolted me down from my chest to my knees. I knew that something was seriously wrong...

It was my brother. He took one look at me and decided there and then that I needed to get to the hospital fast.

When I arrived at the hospital, my brother helped me out of the car and I was rushed into the emergency room where the doctors quickly examined me.

It was obvious to the doctors that I had severe pain in my abdomen, especially as they could barely touch my stomach without me letting out a sudden yelp. However...

They didn't know for sure what was causing the pain, so they called on the gastroenterologist to run some diagnostic tests.

The gastroenterologist arrived and decided that I should have a tube shoved through my nose that would run down to my intestine, like a human siphon.

The tube was extremely uncomfortable, especially when combined with the excruciating pain in my stomach. It was so bad I couldn't but cry as they pushed the tube further down into my body. And...

The doctor said that I was extremely lucky, as I'd been suffering with severe bowel inflammation, which left undetected, could have been fatal.

All those months of having stomach cramps, yet I did nothing. Not once did I visit the doctor and instead I simply chose to ignore the pain.

The gastroenterologist explained to me how this might have happened, but what he said next hit me like a ton of bricks...

I had an illness called Crohn's disease, which was unusual for my age or at least unusual not to have been detected sooner. The worst thing was that part of my intestine had become so inflamed and ulcerated that I needed surgery as soon as possible, otherwise the consequences could be disastrous...

Those words echoed in my head again and again. I was petrified. Not only did I fear having surgery, but the thought of having a stoma (also known as a colostomy bag) attached to my stomach was heartbreaking. Yet...

The major concern I had about the stoma was whether I'd ever be able to have an intimate relationship again. In fact...

Just months previously I'd split with my long-term fiance and, if I'm honest, I wasn't in a great place mentally about my future and the thought of having a "bag" attached to my stomach wasn't something I relished the idea of, despite the doctors best attempts to put my mind at ease.

Of course, in reality I REALLY didn't have a choice about the surgery or the stoma and just hours later I was being prepped for the operating theatre.

When I regained consciousness after the surgery the first thing I did was feel for the stoma around my waist. Let me tell you, I must have triple checked for it, but luckily it wasn't there! ?

I looked up and saw my brother by my bed. He said "Don't worry, Sare! They didn't have to give you one. The surgeon did a great job."

Both the doctor and surgeon told me that I needed to be very careful with my diet and start looking after myself much better. Otherwise, the inflammation could well flare up again and next time I might not be so... Read more...
