I have been reading the board post about
surgery and watchign the youtube videos and reading a lot of sites about
resection. It seems that people do extremley well after it. I have mild Crohns and havent had to take extensive time off of work in 5 years. My disease is in the descending colon about
4 inches or so maybe or less...Who makes the decesion to operate is it the doctor? Or can you tell them that you would like a resection. I have gone 15 years with this disease and would like to look at the resection options as my flares have become frequent. Most recently I am experiencing diahrea on a daily basis. Some pain when I pass solid stool. but for the most part mucos and diahrea is what I have been dealing with since September off and on...and every day for a month now.
I refuse to do prednisone again and 6 mp didnt work as well as I was hoping so dont feel the benefit outweighs the risk for me.
