i know that having surgery is in my future so i have a few questions. my hope is to eventually have a j-pouch, but i know some can not. i have left sided ulcerative colitis with inflammation also in my rectum. how does a dr. decided if you are not a candidate for a j-pouch? and also, for those of you that had UC, did you later find out you had crohns also?
thanks for any input.
