Hello,last year I did the same thing,EVERY morning I would have to throw up to go to the bathroom,I do have a stricture,my GI put me on Imuran and within a short time those symtoms completely stopped :-)   So,I had another scope which showed decreased inflammation,but not as much as he wanted,so he put me on Humira in September,so I will have another scope in January to see if the inflammation has gone down more,he hopes to open the stricture with a scope then. Hang in there.
