I don't think you will find anyone on the UC thread that has had a colectomy for colonic inertia but can meet some on the ostomy thread. Most people here who opted for surgery for UC have a jpouch and our conditions and results are far different than those who have surgery for colonic inertia. I hope you can meet others who have walked the path before you and get some advice and support.
