I have read the same thing basically as Nanners has replied.
However, a top Crohn's specialist in Canada suggested that since I have been recently diagnosed with Crohn's disease there is a possibility that my stricture at the rectosigmoid may be fibrotic and may respond to use of Remicade.
I did have two Remicade infusions approved but have not gone that route as I do not have symtoms.
Krica, I have been reading your posts with interest as I have decisions to make also but feeling great with no medications at the time.
Julie, I feel the same as you. How can I have major surgery when I feel SO great.
Keep us posted.
