I see Dr. Jorge Marcet at USF. He is a world-known colo-rectal surgeon. He has been an amazing resource and I feel humbled to have him as my surgeon. If you need a trustworthy opinion, call the USF Physcians Group in Tampa, Fl.
As far as the Cleveland Clinc, I have been cooresponding with their nurse, Angela, for a couple months. Now that Dr. Marcet has reversed my Ileostomy on 9/29/2009, I want to see if the CC can help me with my motility problems. You are correct, the drive is not pleasant, but we Floridans are fortunate to have such a facility in our state. The drive is not that bad...just get a book on CD and listen while you travel.
