Welcome! I assume that by your description you have colonic inertia?
I opted for j-pouch surgery 5 years ago due to Ulcerative Colitis. Unlike you, my condition was chronic diarrhea. I have been thrilled with the results and am so grateful that this was an option to being chronically ill. Do you live in Ohio? The Cleveland Clinic is a terrific place to go for this surgery but there are a lot of other fantastic CR surgeons around the country that perform this procedure. For more information I suggest you visit www.j-pouch.org There are thousands of j-pouchers registered to that site that can provide you with more information if you are interested in the procedure.
Because you don't have UC, I imagine it's possible that your small intestine can be connected to your rectum. For those of us with UC we lose our rectum as well as the colon. It is also possible to have this surgery without having a temporary ileostomy but no surgeon can guarantee that, it's determined on the operating table. This surgery has given me my life back, I hope it can do the same for you!
