I have a stricture in my large intestine...just about a foot in. Meeting with doctor on Tuesday but trying to remember why he said I couldn't just have strictureplasty.been trying to read up on it but all articles reference small intestines. My entire colon is diseased and told resection of strictured area not an option. I'm Not sure I'm ready to have entire colon and rectum removed. I feel ok most of the time and really no pain...but if. They can't get through with colonoscopies to do biopsies I don't want them to find colon cancer when they do my autopsy! Anyone have similar story with a good outcome?
