I was wondering if anyone has gone to the mayo clinic for any of the reasons to have a illiostomy? I will be going to mayo in Rochester, Minnesota.. I am having a jpouch made and then will go back sometime in april (hopefully) to have a takedown due UC...I just want to know how the experience was and maybe who the surgeon was.. Thank you!!!

You can find a lot of people who had their j-pouch surgeries done at the Mayo if you go to  That website is the authority on j-pouch experiences.



dx proctitis in 1987
dx UC in 1991, was stable until 1998
1998 started prednisone, asacol, pentasa, nortriptylene, ativan, 6MP, rowasa enemas and suppositories, hydrocortisone enemas, tried the SCD diet, being a vegetarian, omega 3s, flax, pranic healing, yoga, acupuncture, probiotics
2000 lost all my B-12 stores and became anemic
2001 opted for j-pouch surgery- now living life med-free
