Hello. I have a jpouch now. Had takedown, and now doin fairly well...however just feel like some things are just still not quite normal. I am 98% better than when I had full UC, but There are times I almost feel kind of like I still have UC, I asked my colorectal surgeon if I still have UC or not. He said no, initially, then said well, about
this much UC (indicating about
an inch or so). I still have part of my rectum which has UC still...so question is: Can I flare in that small amount of UC rectum?? What ya think?
