Glad to hear everything is working correctly! Right, if it ain't broke, why fix it! I didn't have the option of a loop ileo. My surgeon said I was too high a risk for a j-pouch. I didn't care, I just was sooo sick with ulcerative proctitis I just wanted my life back. If it meant wearing a "bag", well so be it. Sadly, my colon was not bad, just my rectum. But when the rectum has to go with UP, so does the colon. It's a shame they couldn't implant my decent colon into someone with a diseased one . Oh well....I don't regret my surgery one iota. I have my life back!!!
Short true story.....I have a friend who was flabbergasted I had this surgery. She said I was the bravest person she knew. Here's a woman who had bone cancer in her right leg and chose to have it chopped off in order to save her life....what's the diff??? To me, she is the bravest person I know..lol.
