I'm two days away from my surgery to form my j-pouch! I'm super excited to be moving forward with my surgeries, saying goodbye to my rectum and colostomy, hello to my ileostomy and finally getting over the waiting game. I want to thank everyone here for being so helpful over the past six months and I'm sure I'll have more questions since a loop ileo is so different from a colostomy. I know a few other people are having surgery this week and I want to wish them luck too. Please keep our surgeons' steady hands in your prayers as well as our speedy and complication free recoveries!
