Can't help with the methotrexate, but I recently had a dilation done. I'm not sure it helped much. My GI is looking for a surgeon, but said he must find one who is very familiar with working on someone who has lost so much bowel. He is afraid I will lose what digestion & absorption I have left after 2 resections. So, the surgeon may decide not to do surgery because I am not having fistulas, abcesses or obstructions. It would basically be to stop the pain and he amy feel it is not warranted.
So, I am in limbo. Hopefully if you need dilation it will work for you.
