I disagree with Writer. I am a firm believer in maintainence meds especially AFTER a resection. I didn't go on maintainence meds after my first remission, and ended up with another only 3 years later. I only take Asacol and I am in remission now. My stubborness with not wanting to take meds caused me alot of hell and I will never be without them again. Better safe than sorry in my book. Everytime you flare it is going to create more scar tissue, even when you are not aware you are flaring. (Microscopic damage). JMHO
By the way my Crohns has been limited to the same area you have it, thats why I disagree with Writer.
