I had to have another resection so soon because I developed really bad nausea all of a sudden and discovered that I have developed another stricture at the reconnection site. I now stay on a low residue diet all the time, take stool softners nightly to keep my stools a little softer and easier to pass, and always take some kind of maintainence med. This works well for "ME".
I am in remission with my guts right now, but I can tell you my joints are horrible. Oh the joys of Crohns:) Anyways, hope that helps.
