I certainly might be time for a resection. Did you have any updated diagnostics done to determine now many centimeters of stricture you might have? Also, you'll still need a maintenance medication plan after surgery. How long were you on Remicade, and were you tested for antibodies?
There are several other anti-TNF's now. Humira is a logical next choice, but Stelara is getting really good reviews.
Many go on to years of remission after surgery. I have a friend that was in horrible shape, and had a lot of small intestine removed. The last time I spoke to her, she was still in full remission without meds. Her surgery was 11 years ago.
Hope you get things under control, and good luck with your decision and going forward.
