I seem to feel myself writing on here a lot - but find it very helpful hearing from people that have experience with Crohn's.
I was diagnosed not long ago and have just had my MRI results back which explain that there is mural thickening associated with narrowing and mural enhancement in the terminal ileum. The affected area is approx 5cm. My follow up with my specialist isn't until January but I am driving myself insane with worry that I may need surgery.
Does anyone know what narrowing is? Does it mean a stricture or obstruction and does this need to be removed? I've been on Prednisolone for almost 9 weeks now and my CRP and inflammation levels are within the normal range, but i still get lots of pain - which I'm guessing is because of this narrowed section?
If anyone has any advice or may be able to answer this - I would really appreciate it.
Thank you for reading
