Hi GeorgiePorgie, I had my first surgery which was the colon remove and i had to wait 3 months to have the second surgery which was to form the j-pouch. At the beginning my surgeon told me it was 3 months in between each surgery but because my insurance starts over july 1st she is doing the 3rd surgery in 7 weeks so i think you will have time to have all 3.
