I think you'll be okay waiting.
Just a good note though. After my surgery, and since I'm being treated, I am feeling better then I have in years. I just always thought I was a lazy slug with IBS, not that I had a chronic illness causing me fatigue. So, in other words, if you have to have surgery you can and may be in remission for years and years and feeling better then you have prior to surgery.
I know many people steer away from surgery but there are benefits to it. I had half my large intestines removed and do have to deal with minor annoinances(sp?) but I don't wear a bag and am hoping for a long, long remission from this disease.
Just sending you some positive thoughts. Let me know what the doc says.
