I am at the point of shopping for a doc who will agree to a 1 step, set up the J-pouch when he does my colectomy. One doctor says "maybe", anothr says no, you need rest and 3 months heeling first. I am 62 but am in good health and have had no symptoms of UC. I have a colonoscope each year becasue of family history and they found cell changes, etc. this time. One operation sure sounds better than two!
Anyone have comments? Is one operation tooo hard to heal up from?
