Well the wife and I went to see the surgeon today.
It appears that I have 4-5 inches in my TI that has narrowing do to scar tissue. I believe she said 12 cm. She went through the whole procedure and really put our minds at ease. She said that I am very healthy and that I should recover very well from this. She also said that it is an elective surgery and I do not need to rush into to this.She said that they would use a catheter, but No NG tube would be needed. She also said that she would do Lapro.
Just thought that I would give you all an update. If there is anyhing that I left out to ask let me know.
Thank you all for your support.... :-)

You should at least feel a little better knowing it will be done laproscopically. Best wishes to you...

Good news Wolfie40 and it's great you feel very confident in the surgeon. That helps. When do you think you are going to "elect" to have the surgery?

I need to get off the Prednisone first. I'm at 10 mg today and my GI wants me to hold at that until Jan 7 when I see him again. The surgeon does not want to really do surgery until I am off Pred. I wish I could ahve the surgery this month yet as i have met my deductible for insurance for the year. But that's not ganna happen. I'm going to try if I can get off Pred have the surgery in Feb 09. Hopefully no complications coming off the Pred..
I will keep you all posted...
