Having Crohn's For 7 Years Now

I have had Crohn's for 7yrs. I've been having blockages almost every 3 months since Sept 2015. Doctor feels Humira is not working now, and I am now on it every week instead of twice a month. I am also coming off Prednisone, but was put on Entocort. Doctor told me surgery is in the future, a resection. Am wondering if I'll have to go through another NG tube, and have to do a bowel cleanse before surgery. Also about what is the recovery time? I find out more info June 15th. My diet now is all soft. Baby food, cooked canned soft carrots, egg whites, bread, water ice, jello. This is all I eat. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
