I have a significant stricture in my sigmoid colon which some doctors think should be surgically removed. Scopes have showed constant inflammation in that area for the last year-and-a half since it was found but I do not suffer with usual symptoms of Crohn's. Even going on mtx was a hard decision but we are going to try reduce the inflammation and then scope again in January. Seeing a great GI who understands my situation.
Until then, the only thing I nocticed was that the number of bowel movements has gone from 6-7 to 1-2 per day after a month of taking mtx. I used to feel what I called a kink or pressure on the left side of my abdomen but haven't felt that the last month either.
I previously thought I would just have the surgery but am beginning to think that I feel way too good to do that yet. I watch what and how much I eat at one time and will see what happens.
