It sounds like you have Crohns in the most common area the TI and Cecum. That is where my Crohns is/was located too. I say is/was as I had the area surgically removed due to a complete obstruction. If you are feeling relatively well, I would just talk to your doc about
a good maintainence med and try to stick to a low residue diet and I think you should be fine without surgery right now. Surgery should be a last option, unless things get so bad and your quality of life is suffering. Good luck!
