You probably felt the pain of the stuff passing thru the stricture. I would not put off your surgery just because you are having a few good days, I think this pain is telling you to go ahead with it. I would also try to stay on a low residue diet until your surgery. You can google it and get some ideas of what is allowed. Just remember easy to chew, easy to digest. Good luck!
