Dear Dr. Chandra,
Have you talked to a gastro-intestinal surgeon about your condition?
i don't have much experience in these cases, but i think that unless you have a permanent cure may be a surgery, my guess is that you will have to have dilatations and i am not sure if there is a limit to the number of dilatations that can be made.
Before any more dilatations, i would personally recommend that a biopsy be taken to rule out local recurrence unless already done.
The frequency of stools could be related to the fact that the stricture is holding solid stools behind it and the only way to get around the stricture for the stools is to become diarrheal.
Thank you very much for using our website http://doctorslounge.com and i hope that this information helped.
