I have/had strictures. 37cm of small and 5 cm of large intestine removed in Aug. Symptoms before: severe fatigue, nausea, vomitting, pain and diahrea when obstructed. Low fibre diet for a year, symptoms progressively got worse. Felt worn out every day. 2.5 months after surgery the symptoms are pretty much the same, minus the pain. Now they say its maybe another stricture or possibly intestinal migraines. Not saying I didn't need the surgery. But, it didn't get rid of the symptoms. I agree with the others who say to wait if you are not sick and feeling bad. Best of luck LynnRN!
