Selecting the Right Surgery
Lesson 12 · 6 min
Surgery is often a last resort when you have inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), as medication usually does a good job managing the disease. However, for some people, it can be a necessity. And for these individuals, surgery can provide some relief.
It’s worth noting that while surgery won’t actually cure your IBD, some people stay symptom-free for many years afterward. Also, taking medications after surgery can lower the odds that your IBD will come back.
