At the very least you would have to have yourself monitored often to make sure nothing changes. Perhaps seek a second opinion about
surgery. I didn't have any displasia (yet) when I had j pouch surgery....just horrible UC with no quality of life. Not sure what I would have done if a doctor told me that and my symptoms were at bay. But it certainly would make me think long and hard about
it. I had a cousin die young of colon cancer. Not a fun way to go.
Hopefully someone will come along with more experience with low grade dysplasia. You can also ask on www.jpouch.org.
DX UC in 2005. Family history of UC.
