just to let you know I had surgically induced remission, twice, ea time lasted about
12 years ea. time. depends on your individual situation, mine was small bowel up high in my small b. so no lap. surgery only super invasive type for me. now i don't want any surgery I only have 20feet of small bowel left, my dr is hopeing that we can use just med's, so I'm ofk with that because I've had 4 surgeries, and like i said mine are (surgeries) really invasive, and physically very demanding when you have those type of surgeries. mine was obstruction that could have been deadly,i had no choice.
