Was it sucessful at all, for how long? My GI said he could remove the part of my rectum that's ulcerated and reconnect it if I want to try it before getting the illeostomy. I only have like one inch of ulceration in there so I'm considering giving it a try... I just can't get rid of this one darn ulcer so thought maybe if he did this, I might feel better for a while.
