i looked at this surgery and like you thought it sounded great! but when i started looking into it i found there were some problems. It's anew procedure, i think about
500 poeple have had it so far, i didn't really want to be having a surgery that so few people had had! it's apparently pretty hard to do, which is why it's only done in a few hosptials in the US, i think there are two or three. It has a high rate of failure, or pouchitis from what i remember. WHen i asked my surgeon about
it he said, it's a great idea, but it's still got kinks in it.
I was actually leaning towards it before i found out about
the low number of people who had it and the high failure rate. Anyway, one of the ostomy boards has a forum just for people who have those. Although there aren't many people on there, lol.
Life with a bag isn't bad though.
Good luck with whatever you decided
