Well, look at the bright spot - you spelled ileum right!!! *weak smile* Yup, I'm sorry too that surgery is being suggested so soon in your life. It never hurts to get a second opinion if you are uncomfortable about
this. Hopefully you will be a good candidate for strictureplasty rather that full resection and hopefully they can do your surgery laparoscopically (spelling?? *red-faced smile*). At least that would allow for a bikini still. *wicked grin*
