In brief: Are you sure?

Partial resection of the colon on Crohn's disease can be tricky and also can lead to complications such as obstruction of the colon that is left over. Many are left with permanent ostomy bags.
I wouldnmake absolutely certain that you have maxed out medical therapy and would even get a second opinion before embarking on this surgery
