I am struggling emotionally as a result of my surgery and I know that this may sound strange but I want to know exactly what went on during the surgery (Proctocolectomy and J pouch with temp loop ileostomy). Does anyone know of any informative video clips of/about the surgery or maybe details of exactly what the surgeon does during this procedure?

I'm pretty sure I saw one somewhere of a proctocolectomy. I have seen a lot of things and can handle a lot, but this isn't something I want to see again.

I did see a colon taken out on an episode of Boston Med -- that's available online. It was a 6 or so part special on 3 hospitals in Boston. The surgery was for colon cancer, and I'm not sure exactly what they did.... I think they only showed the taking the colon out part, and some talking w/doctor and patient (the doctor works out of the same office as my surgeon).
