just a few questions if you don't mind........I know my situation would be different from yours but just curious.
1. how many bm's do you have a day?
2. how long can you hold a bm in for if not near a bathroom?
3. how long did it take you to be able to leave the house after the jpouch was done? and feel comfortable knowing you could make it to the bathroom in a decent amount of time (and what do you consider decent?)
4. do you still need to know where bathrooms are when you go places?
5. have you had any complications that are affecting you currently?\
6. kind of silly but......what kind of noises does it make when you go? Is it relatively quiet or do you sometimes get quiet and sometimes get loud?
