My First MRI

MY first MRI

I had my first MRI today in order to find out why my butt has been hurting (and bleeding) over a year since my proctectomy.  I’d be nice if perianal disease could quit being such a pain in the ass!

The experience was interesting, and if you have an IBD, you may at some point need an MRI too. Of course, no two experiences are the same, so keep that in mind while I explain how my day went.

It’s my 1st ASSiversary (a year without a rectum or anus)

Happy ASSiversary

It was a year ago today that my rectum was removed and my anus left to close up into a “Ken Doll Butt”, so I’ll be celebrating my ASSiversary today =)

Crohn’s disease often comes with a lot more than just an upset stomach, and having a pain in the ass (literally) is something I’ve had to face for many years. If you’re interested in reading about my history of perianal disease or the experience of having a proctectomy (the technical term for an ass removal), then I’ve written about it several times, and would like to direct you to those articles in this post.
