The first surgery was in March 1999 and was a small bowel resection and a stictureplasty. The two resections were to relieve bowel obstruction caused by the desmoid tumor. The strictureplasty was to relieve internal bowel obstructions due scarring due to crohn's disease. When one of the resections healed it healed down to narrower than the rest of the bowel, causing anothe stricture. The repeated recurrence of stricture at the site of old surgeries is quite common in crohn's disease.
