Carry on or not?

Hey, so I'm having my first operation next week (worried) and I've been given the choice of weather to carry on with azathioprine or not. What do you think?

My operation is an ileocolic resection by laparoscopic.
Also since I've been on ng feeds for 9 weeks will this slow down the process of starting to eat again?

Thanks x

You probably need to stop most or all medications 10 days prior to surgery anyway. Did they tell you that? Personally if this drug landed you in surgery it's not doing the trick and id look at other options. It's best to consult with your doctor about options and what they think is best.

I had the choice to continue 6mp after surgery and chose not to because it didn't prevent surgery. I know sometimes a med alone can't be held responsible but I'd personally try something else if possible.
