Hi!!, thanks to everyone that have answered  my question. I had a bowel resection in 2001, but the disease have returned on 2005. I have two stricures one with 2.5 cm and another with 2.8cm. Today i have received a letter from the hospital for a colonoscopy exam, i am not sure if  iam going to do or not, i did not see my doctor to discuss my case , he sent me the MRI results by post and now i received this letter for a colonoscopy exam. I am very worry about the situation, however i am feeling very  well with no systom of the disease, but it is very unclear what is going to happens next.  Thanks :-)

Maybe they want to do the C-Scope to how bad the strictures are. You know they can stretch them in an effort to avoid surgery. I would go with the scope, especially if you haven't had one in a while. Good Luck!
