Abdominal Colectomy & Now Celiac!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

In 1997, I had my entire large intestine removed (abdominal colectomy). My small intestine was just fine, so the surgeon just shortened my intestinal tract, without having to have a colostomy. This was a definite life-saver!! Now, finding out the celiac diagnosis, I am a little confused and slightly frustrated in the change (AGAIN!!) in my bathroom habits! I am curious if there is anyone else out there who has had this surgery that also has celiac. I can't really talk about this to my husband, as he doesn't have either situation and is not compassionate or understanding! I would really like to find someone that can relate to what I am going through, as I am getting very frustrated with my new gluten-free diet and how my body is reacting to it. Don't misunderstand! I FEEL much better!! Just am getting rather irritated about the other changes in my body. If anyone else has been down this road, or one very similar, I would really appreciate hearing from you. Thank you!
