Thanks everyone for your comments....I'm just finally getting a chance to write back again.
I "do NOT" have a jpouch. I saw my Surgeon 2 weeks ago for post-op (which went pretty good). I asked her about the jpouch's and she said, "no you do NOT" have a jpouch. She said you have a much different and rare situation. She said we removed all of your colon due to the diverticulitus (and it had burst open months earlier---almost died).....anyway she said that I have a rectum and a little bit of the colon to which they connected the lower intestine to. She up'd the Cholestramine to twice a day to try and help me, Metamucil 3 times a day, Imodium 8 times a day and I am doing a little better but still have to run a lot to the bathroom over and over again. I'm up every 2 hours at night even though I'm on Ambien (good thing I guess I don't sleep through it...YULK). She said if it doesn't get any better then she can prescribe a Narcotic (pain RX) for me to take that will help bind me but she said I hate to give out pain prescriptions because they are VERY habit forming and once I start taking it then I will have to take it the rest of my life because it's very addicting. So we both decided I will do the extra Cholesetramine and stuff and try to watch what I eat. I was worried about a 5 hour flight I have next month to see my family in Arkansas (I'm in California). I told her that I am flying Southwest, so we can't pick our own seat in advance and I want to make sure I'm close to a bathroom. She gave me a letter to show the airlines that I have a serious medical condition and require a seat close to the restroom. So I will probably get priority seating (with the handicap and children first, so that's ok). One of you asked about my plumbing...I just explained it in the first part of this....no Colon....but a piece connected to the rectum directly connected to the small intestine. Thanks for all your comments and help. You guys are great!
By the way I had my Leukemia check up too and my Oncologist gave me a thumbs up for now. I don't have to go back for 6 months but continue blood work every 3 months (which I have to do the rest of my life). So glad I have good medical insurance and an excellent Oncologist and Surgeon.
