I've never had surgery, and my main symptom is diarrhea as my Crohn's is in my colon, so I don't know how similar my case is to yours...that being said, I'd try the Remicade. I was on it for a year or two (until it stopped working) and it really worked well for me. It seems much less invasive than surgery would be, too!!
