I would love to help you out with your question but I had a 2-step surgery so I went straight from a temo ostomy to a functioning pouch. I would recommend you post a thread at www.jpouch.org and in your tag line ask for Kathy Smith. Kathy had a 3 step procedure and can give you all the details.
I can say that a temp ostomy is harder to manage than a permenant ostomy. Don't be surprised if you suddenly have mucus or small bowel movements coming out of the pouch. This happens to all of us. Don't be surprised if you see some bleeding either. It's all normal.
