I think it is a reasonable plan to do the resection surgery if you are bleeding so much that you are down to a hemoglobin of 5.4. Alternatively you can try a high dose of steroids along with the remicade, to see what happens, but honestly, I think your docs are correct.
I've been in remission since my re-section surgery in 2014 for whatever that's worth. I do have bad IBS, but I have struggled with that my whole life and it's a bit worse since surgery. Some people do stay in remission for many years post surgery....it isn't a guarantee though. But you are in trouble now, and something needs to be done better than you bleeding so much. Good luck with your decision.
