So sorry to hear that. I wonder myself if I am just buying time. Please let us know how your appt and consults go, I am very interested in hearing more.
EdieKristen - is the avg. really 10 times a day? I thought it was 4-6 and once at night???
Also, a question I have is how much control do you have when you have a j-pouch, how near to a toilet do you need to be? I would ask that.
Good luck w/everything.
