I first started to suffer bouts of horrendous abdominal pain in 1994. 6 years ago I had a colonoscopy & biopsies evidently came back normal despite stenosis of ileocecal valve. I was discharged with a diagnosis of IBD. Serveral attacks later, including trips to A&E & being sent home with painkillers my new GP said we had to start again from scratch after 6 awful months of pain following a flare up last March. Since December I have had colonoscopy, MRI & started on vit B12 & iron infusions. Yesterday I was finally told I have Crohn's. I have 3 very tight strictures in small bowel 10,7 & 5cm long. I've been given choice of recection or infliximab. Just don't know what to do. My decision is even harder to make given that at the moment I feel quite well. Any one had to make this choice?
