Everything depends on the extent of the disease & how well a person responds to the medications. There are more medications available now to treat patients, many do not ever need surgery.
When I first joined HW, I had already had a resection & was really sick. It was helpful to me to have a place to see how others handled life in general. I learned a great deal from the members. Nearly every one of those members are no longer active here. I like to believe they are doing well & living life.
