I thought I would check to see if anyone here has a Barnett's Continent Internal Reservoir ileostomy. I just read about it today and got kind of excited. I do have a Crohn's dx, but it's actually indeterminate. My biopsies and Prometheus test show UC but I have a fistula and tags. I wanted to see if anyone here had any info.
Thanks so much!
