If you have not had any previous surgeries, I think a lap would be possible for you. But you should know that sometimes when they get in there, they find a bigger mess than expected and have to convert to
open, they happened to me. I have never had a dialation, but heard they usually last about
6 mos or so. I think if you are able, if you could go with a stricturplasty that would be the best way to go as it saves bowel, while
opening up the stricture. Good luck!
