I wish you all the luck and hope for a quick recovery. Try not to be too hard on your parents...they truly want to only see the best for you and, by what you say, are following the recommendations of your doctor. This will all be over before you know it. My 18 year old son, Dillon, left yesterday for University. It really feels like yesterday that he was recovering from his first surgery. He now has a great functioning J pouch, is completely healthy, has put on 30 lbs and is enjoying his life so much ...in my eyes maybe too much...lol ..
He is so happy to have it ALL behind him!
