They generally do 2-steps 60% (what my surgeon told me) of the time, and the rest are 1-steps. These are reserved for people a) in relatively good health, b) relatively young, c) with long enough small intestine to make it an option. I fit the first two, and they thought the third as well, but for some reason i just didnt have the length to the intestine. They cant tell till they get in there, so you cant count on anything! Just goes to show you never know. I think its safer anyway to have those 3 months of healing, im 4 months out and had some complications so i am still healing before reconnection, but you can really tell a huge improvement. I know someone who had a 1-step and was in virtual hell for 3months after...she was 23 like me and had no complications...its just a VERY tough operation...if i were you i would go for the 2-step...that is rough enough, trust me.
