If it were me I would go to the CC for a revision. But I say that because a permanent ileo was never an option for me. Due to backpacking and long distance hiking I knew I would have to give up what I love most if I didn't try a jpouch. Since this is your decision you should make a list of pros and cons and try to choose the best solution for you. I will say that the CC is reknown for CR surgery and would expect you to sail through a redo if chosen. What part of the country do you live? There might be resources closer to your home.
