Hi   I am a 41 year old female just getting over a surgery from dec.  I had surgery in April where they gave me a osotmoy and I was so happy to have it that I decided that after 22 years of suffering that in Dec I had my rectum removed.  I have lots of stories, things which happen to me but I am so happy I had it done.  It has started to now change my whole life.

Congratulations! I too had surgery for UC and have been very happy with my re-engineered GI tract. I wish you many more years of health and happiness.

dx proctitis in 1987
dx UC in 1991, was stable until 1998
