This isn't answering your question but I would really be interested in more details of your surgery. Your situation sounded a lot like mine. Stricture in colon which we know is deep scar tissue, no pain, normal bowel movements. I have surgery scheduled in May.
Were they able to do it laporoscopically? Pain? Bowel movements post op? Did they do something about the Meckels? Would appreciate updates.
