If your stricture is from scar tissue no medication is going to reduce it. If its from inflammation, then meds and diet will work. Many folks are initially diagnosed with Crohns because of obstructions and having to need emergency surgery. I would personally prefer to have had a elected surgery vs. an emergency surgery.
What kind of symptoms are you having right now? We might be better able to give you more insight if we know what symptoms you are living with.
