Does anyone in here happen to have a J-pouch? I had my colonoscopy and it's still active Crohn's in the colon . My. GI has me doing Rowasa and I have a Remicade infusion tomorrow but if that doesn't get rid of it by my next scope sometime in November my GI says he expects the surgeon will take the colon out and give me a J-Pouch. I've read on it a bit and it seems much preferable to having a bag full-time and what not. Does anyone here have one and have any tips..or warnings or just anything about it? I'm just hoping that whatever gets down I can get cleared back to work and my normal life from before all this getting cut up started . :) Thanks for any answers .
