Don't understand what he means by borderline case for resection and what age has to do with anything? I had a resection one year ago at the age of 57.
Just had an ultrasound yesterday which showed things as being normal. Feeling very good as far as the Crohn's goes.
If you have a stricture which is scar tissue, no meds will take that away and I would think surgery would be inevitable sometime in the future. As far as how loose the stool is, how is it now? I thought surgery especially if just in the colon could help with that if they remove the active disease. But remember there are no guarantees with surgery either. Some people have a long remission while in others it comes back fairly quickly.
