I will find a way or make one. –Phillip Sidney 1554-1586

Make sure your suffering has meaning…
The thought of surgery or taking the medications is naturally very scary. Hopefully you are confident in your GI and surgeon. It sounds like they have a good idea of what they are dealing with if they know you have scar tissue and where. Of course they might find more but strictures are scar tissue and not a reason in itself to have to open you up. I had laparoscopic surgery to remove a stricture in the colon and after short recovery am doing great.
And Cimzia might not be the drug of choice for maintenance for you once you have had surgery. Together you will decide what is best.
Good luck, keep us updated and if questions ask.
