For those of you with UC that have had colectomies, do you still see a GI? Is it common to see a GI still after the surgery?
My daughter had a total colectomy with temporary ileostomy in August and we were told that we no longer needed to see a GI, that she no longer had UC anymore because she had no colon. But from reading, it seems like most people are still monitored by a GI, at least until after their surgeries are completed. Is that true?
