We are so excited that we have a guest blogger on our UC Story to J-Pouch blog! Although the MAJORITY of UC people DO NOT have surgery (60-80% do not need surgery), if you are in that other 20-40% who might be thinking of surgery, you can check out Carter:
Carter is 22 years old (had UC 8 years), and just had his j-pouch 'takedown' surgery (6 days ago) and he is showing his photos and his story of making the surgery decision, etc...
Please visit Carter's blog page, and send him a comment, I'm sure he could use the encouragement to heal well and keep sharing his story!
**Also, we sure hope some day to have a female blogger sharing her photos and story (it is the missing piece of the site since all we have are males representin' and these diseases don't discriminate by gender**
