IMO, there's just not enough information here to judge. Have you tried some more potent drugs like Remicade or Humira or even 6mp? Is there medical evidence of stricture or fistulas in an area that could be resected? Has your GI recommended resection?
In general, the consensus on this board seems to be that resection is a last resort, since in most patients CD returns in another area in time. The best advice I have seen is to assess all possible options, get a trusted medical opinion and proceed from there, with surgery as a best option only if and when you have exhausted all other options.
Surgery won't cure your crohns, you could be sick again within days or weeks of surgery. Some people go into remission for a few months, few go into remission for years. Once they take bowels out, they never grow back and you can't have optional surgery every time you get sick or you'll end up with short bowel syndrome. Surgery is an absolute last resort.
Have you tried imuran? It takes a few months to work, but helps alot of people. Probiotics and eating a natural diet also help crohn's symptoms.
You can try a special diet like The Maker's Diet or the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. Most people who give them a shot for at least a month find great improvements with their crohns. Just keep in mind not to eat anything that can obstruct, try cooking and pureeing or mashing. (ie: fruits or veggies especially).
You could also try more potent drugs like remicade. There are always risks, especially long-term, even with imuran and steroids.
Obviously, if the steroids aren't helping your crohns, you need to try something different: new meds, diet changes, natural remedies, or a combination of all three.
Thanks for your advice. Here is a little more detail. I was on 9 mg of entocort and it did nothing. I was put on prednisone today. I also take 4 g of Pentasa, 20 mg Lexapro, 30 mg prevacid, 25 mg amytrptaline, and 10 mg of Maxalt. CD has been a hard adjustment for me mentally and physically. I struggle losing weight (I just had a baby 6 motnhs ago), I am constantly tired, my bowels have a mind of their own, and I feel like it is getting too hard to be sick. I also know that I have the personality that pushes myself too hard and I don't allow myself to be sick. What is so hard is that I am in so much pain and it has been so long. I can't remember the last time I could play with my kids and be effective at work. I am so scared my boss will be upset because I miss one to two days a week out of my five day work week. THe reason I didn't want to go on Prednisone was because I struggle mentally as it is and when I read up on the side effects it said weight gain, anxiety, sleeplessness, and so on. I am a strong person, but it is getting to where I need a break. I did allow my doctor to put me on 30 mg of prednisone a day and she said she wants to try it for a month. I don't want surgery, but if it means I can have another child soon and not have my body effected byt the drugs, than to me surgery is a small sacrifice. I guess I don't know what I want. I appreciate everyone on this forum because I have learned more about CD and my options in the last couple weeks than in my entire life. I am on a low residue diet and I am learning to rest more. I appreciate your comments because I finally feel like I have friends that can relate to me and my life. I have many friends, but none of them have CD and although they are supportive, you guys know my life and the challenges of CD. I am looking into remicade, imuran, and seeing the effects those have. My mom is currently on imuran and is doing well. Again I welcome advice on anything. I am even considering working part-time. I will talk with ya'll soon.
