Well, it has been a long long 9 months since surgery #1. Excited yet a bit nervous about going into the operating room again. And the unknown of how my J pouch will work out.
I want to thank everyone here for the helpful advice in these last few months, it makes life so much easier when you can read other peoples experience the good and bad that way you don't feel so alone.

The operation is at 12 pm no more food or drinks as of 20 mins ago... I will not be a happy camper all morning without coffee and food but it will be well worth it.
