First ileal resection soon


i’ll have my first ileal resection in 10 days as I have been struggling with strictures, weight loss and digestion this last year, even with entyvio.

i had another surgery with strictureplasty and no resections 10 years ago, but this time we need to get rid of that part of my ileum that keep narrowing and stricturing.

The plan is to cut around 12 inches, and be back to a normal life I wish, with probably a new treatment to stay under control for a lot more years.

if you have any advice or experience to share to help me go through it, it’d be much apreciated!
