My daughter has Crohn's disease and has been through the biologics and now on Stelara. She has stricturing which needs a resection. In the past and currently, surgeons stopped biologics before surgery and one of her potential surgeons wants her to stop the Stelara 8 weeks before surgery and start again 4 weeks after. Her GI wants to get her into tip top shape by increasing frequency of Stelara and adding Imuran hoping to decrease inflammation and try to get her out of her flare prior to surgery saying new studies indicate stopping biologics isn't necessary. Two great teams with differing opinions. Has anyone had resection surgery due to stricture while on Stelara (very little info since so new) and what did your surgeon say you needed to do? I worry that 8 weeks off any biologic will be a detriment but also fear not stopping biologic will lead her susceptible to infections and leaks too. Don't want my beautiful 18 year old daughter with a stoma if it can be avoided. Help!!!
