Sandy J: CREST

New Zealand

Lemon and Pink Rosebud by Sherrill Knaggs, ISN Artist I am hoping I may be able to have contact with any person who has CREST with skin involvement, and who especially has the problem with stomach dysmotility.

I have had an ileostomy for two years and a feeding peg for just over one year, and would appreciate comments from any person who also has one or both of these problems.

I can eat a small bowl of cereal for breakfast, a plain yogurt and tin of ensure for lunch, but the rest of the days feeding is done via the feeding pump.

I also have Raynaud's quite badly, fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis.

I look forward to any response.
