WHOO HOO !!!
I am so happy to hear that you are finally getting some answers and hopefully a resolve with surgeons willing to help you.
Sorry it has to be surgery, but if it fixes your problem, it is worth it.
Hang in there
57 year old Grandma in the Buckeye State.
DX'd in 2006 with UC and in 2007 DX changed to Crohn's Colitis.
June 2010 had 10 inches of my colon removed due to a stricture.
Refused Remicade and Humira and opted for what I was certain the end result would be.
July 2011 had a proctocolectomy and permanent ileostomy without reservation.
Got my life back and stoma Lillie and I are doing great !!!
