Glad to hear you are doing well. I never had the option of having a j-pouch. Actually, I didn't care because I was so sick of being sick. I had ulcerative proctitis for twelve years and the meds were killing me, they really were. My GI doctor refused to send me to a surgeon, so I found one online, read his credentials and went with it. I have no regrets either. Best of luck to you.
