Welcome, Jules! I can't answer your question, because I had my colon and rectum removed due to Crohn's and have a permanent ileostomy, but someone will be along soon to help you out! I just wanted to welcome you to the colon-free zone!
Dx'd Crohn's in '99 at age 28. Proctocolectomy and permanent ileostomy in '06.
Disease-free and medicine-free since surgery and very thankful to be healthy again.
