Hi Bev,
Sorry I cant help you because I have just had my ileostomy made permanent by having the proctocolectomy. But I just wanted to wish you luck with it all and hope whatever decision you make that everything goes smoothly for you. Keep us posted on your progress and take care

ask about recovery time? medications? follow ups? how long you will be in the hospital? chance for infection? ask them to look at how your pouch looks while they are in there...

i hope this helps!
