CrohnieToo beat me to the punch. One of my GI's told me that 13 out of 100 patients had to have surgery to remove the capsule. Of course, he also said that the surgery resolved their issue since it was narrowing. So the question is, how much narrowing and how narrow is narrow. One of my resections, I was down to less than the width of a pencil. I don't think the capsule would have gone through, but I would have been grateful to have the surgery as an emergency, because I ended up waiting months while the doctors tried multiple medicines to try to reduce the inflamation. Only problem was it was scar tissue. To this day, I can't eat Jello, just too many months of Jello breakfast , lunch and dinner!
Best of luck on Wednesday.
