Hi, many thanks for your reply. I am in the UK, so not sure what the alternative to Remicade is but the consultant said nothing could be done with the drugs or surgery!?. Well I don't want to give what bowel I have left away so easily...
As the stricture is near the rectum I thought maybe they could do something, along with the drugs to calm the inflammation. I just do not want to end up with a permanent stoma. The thing is I had my operation last August, and no one mentioned I had inflammation in my sigmoid, I could have used and tried steroid enemas in the meantime, although having said that giving the sigmoid a rest I thought it may have healed. I did read a post on here about someone who had a stricture near the rectum, but wasn't sure what the outcome was.
I will try and fight my case tomorrow.
