WOW! I feel really bad that I haven't been in touch with her. I'll have to fix that when she gets home from the hospital. In the meantime I will continue to pray that she improves every day.
I didn't have to talk my surgeon into an end ileo.....he said I was not a candidate for a j-pouch..end of story..lol. He knows his stuff, that is for sure. I sort of got the feeling that he wasn't a big fan of j-pouch anyway. He trained at the Cleveland Clinic and I suppose he saw the rates of failures compared to successes.
