So, after much deliberation, I've decided to go with the loop ileostomy. The past year with this JPouch has been an extremely tough one but I think more than anything else my body is telling me I miss you guys here :) So it's bringing me back!

Thanks a lot for the support and education which helped with my decision. The date is set for July 30th, can't wait to get some relief and be healthy again!

Bahhh why are they playing games with my head ?!?!
So I finally made my decision to move forward and have everything set, and the nurse calls me now and tells me they were able to get the denial for the Humira reversed and that I am eligible to start on Humira. Gosh!
Now what? Start humira? Wait 6 weeks to see if it works? Then have to wait another 4 weeks before I can do any sort of surgery if it fails.
I already had my mind made up, why do they keep confusing me :(
