Are you having j pouch surgery or are you going back to your original plumbing?
I have had an ileostomy for 30 years now due to UC.
I'm not a complete idiot - some parts of me are missing!

My doctor left in the rectum to see if it was savable (last Jan.) and as he has said recently that the rectum "looks like hell" so he'll be removing it in 3 weeks, doing an internal pouch ( i assume that's a j-pouch) and i will need to heal then we go for another surgery shortly after that.
