Unless you are having painful constipation issues, the stricture can be left alone. If the stricture is very narrow, likely your gastroenterologist can dilate it open.

Not so...: Both of these medications are used by experienced practitioners in a setting where monitoring and emergency equipment are the standard of care. Each causes sedation and amnesia, although Propofol reliably induces sleep. The best choice for you may be the one used most frequently by your care team. They, in turn, would wish for you to come to a decision with them, based on your own medical profile. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
