My boyfriend is getting a J-pouch in a couple of weeks. I always stay with him while he is in the hospital.
I just want to know in detail what he will be like right after this surgery while in the hospital. I know you can't control bowel movements afterwards. So should I stay in the room with him or will he constantly be going to the bathroom on himself?
He said he will have to wear a diaper for a while until he can control it. I just feel like I'll be uncomfortable seeing him like that and nurses will probably be cleaning him up and that will really bother me to see.
I just want to know what to expect so I'll be prepared.
