Have to drive all the way back to my surgeon tomorrow for them to do the pouchogram xray thing. My surgeon was completely ok with doing the xray 2 weeks before my actual 12th week. He was very happy to see how far I've come since the first surgery.
He told me that if the xray looks good then I could go ahead and schedule the takedown.
