Hi all, I am newly diagnosed. Just spent four days in the hospital on IV antibiotics. Three general surgeons I saw during my hospitalization recommended surgery. They all indicated if you are under age 50 you should have surgery after one episode. If over 50, surgery is indicated after 2 episodes. The gastroenterologist I saw post-hospitalization does not use an age cut-off. I am 39 years old. Upcoming colonoscopy in a couple weeks will give us a better idea of whether surgery is indicated but just wondering if anyone else has heard of the age cut-off for surgery? Also, anyone ever gone through with surgery after a single episode?
