hi everyone, hope your well, i normally post on the ulcerative colitis board so i'm new here.
i'm male, 28, live in england. i've had uc for 14 years and am in the middle of a flair. the doctor has told me to consider surgery. i've been doing a lot of research but would like to ask a few questions to people who have actually been through j pouch surgery for uc
how many bm's do you have in a typical day?
is there much urgency?
are you tired a lot?
is your diet restricted or can you eat things now that you couldn't before?
how long has it been since you had the op?
this is a sensitive one and it scares me most, i've been told there is a small chance of impotence, has anyone had this problem? ignore that if your not comfortable with it
i'd really like to hear from anyone in the uk that has had or is having surgery.
thanks for reading, rob
