My PM suggested one as well. I was not really interested in it. I wanted to do more research before I had that done. He didn't push it so I just kinda dismissed it. I would love to hear from someone who has had it done. Wonder if it "really" works. Along with the Crohns comes some anal pain, as I am sure you know, and he also suggested a nerve block for that area. But he admitted he had never treated a patient with that himself. He just studied it.
Hope you find some answers!
I am a 29 yo female, Dx with UC in 97, hospital stays monthly, tons of blood transfusion, bowel rest on TPN, prednisone, asacol, sulfa, imuran, VSP
99- multiple failed remicade treatments, more hospital stays
finally in 2001 had enough and had total colectomy (j-pouch) surgery, 1st step was good, then the reversal was not such a breeze, got peritinitis which was awful!!
the rest of 2001-2006 were amazing!
now having problems again- they are thinking Crohns.- have been on Humira with no luck
