Hi , I moved from the UC forum to this one in prevision of my surgery. I will see my surgeon tomorrow and know more but I hve some questions for the ppl living with an ileostomy.
1-Is there food you can't eat, what is your diet like?
2-For girls, what kind of clothes do you wear? I think my jeans and t shirts would be too tight and squeeze the bag too much... do you have tricks to share?
3-Is there a way to know before having the colectomy if I will be a cadidate for the J pouch?
4-Should I expect complications or this operation is habitually well tolerated??
Thanks a lot in advance
