I have joined the j-pouch.org site, as I will be having that same surgery some time soon. I highly recommend you check them out and ask this same question, as practically everyone there has had that same procedure.

Life has never been so sweet! I appreciate the small things in life...the little joys that occur every second of every day. Though we struggle and have crazy complications, nothing can over ride our love and happiness.
