I'm sorry to read all that you have been through. It sounds like you've got a difficult choice between a couple of not-so-great options: "Do you want this bad tasting medicine or do you want that bad tasting medicine? Oh, and by the way, the medicine may help or it may just taste bad." That's what it can feel like before picking an option, right? It did for me.
Have your doctors said anything about
you have a stricture or strictures? A complication like that could impact your decision.
Another consideration could be to have a consult with the surgeon. What is their experience (and how much experience does he/she have) with resections?
