Well, my girl went in this morning. Her endo. showed improvement which is great. Her col. showed areas of improvement but he wasn't able to get a scope into the illeum at all. This caused him concern and they will do a small bowel follow through the first of the week. He believes there is either an obstruction or further narrowing. I have a few ?'s, if I may...... He said not to worry he can do surgery to remove that portion. I know many of you have had surgeries, what is your take on this? I feel that surgery should definately be a last resort. I may be jumping the gun here but I feel like that is a drastic measure. He switched her from 3 entocort to 6 prednisone daily. Also, She has another anal abcess which he is treating with flagyl. Is this just going to keep coming back? She is to continue the liquid diet since solids make her vomit. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for your input!
