I'm tired of being sick. Anyone had great success with surgery? Hope to get stricturplasty done on the bad parts. How do they determine which parts to remove? Is it via colonoscopy?

The surgeon told me yesterday that strictureplasty isn't done on the large intestine/sigmoid. Is this what others have been told?

Depends on the surgeon I believe.

I'm currently on 9mg Entocort, and 75mg 6mp and having bad cramps and pain when I eat certain foods. Even cookies I think affect it. Anyone else have problems with cookies? :(
