Hello all my old Colitis friends. I thought I would say hi and help answer some questions on the forum. I just had j-pouch surgery 4 weeks ago. I'm doing ok. A little depressed. The doc said all I have been through he expected it someday. If I can help any of you let me know. I have had colitis for 5 years, lost my colon, ostomy bags two different times, reconnected directly to my rectum, found colitis in rectum, reconnected j-pouch this year. Now taking no drugs except Lexapro for my mental state. Whats up with everybody. Westy

Hey, it's great that you're back at HW/UC!!!!!! For sure there are new members coming online who can benefit from your experience/advice. Are you taking any multivitamins? Recouping some physical strength will likely help you to beat the depression. Hang in there! / Old Hat (nearly 30 yrs with left-sided UC; currently on 3 Colazal daily for maintenance of remission)
