If you are going for a jpouch consult here are some questions:
1. Do you do open or lapro surgery?
2. How many jpouch surgeries have you performed?
3. Do you have any jpouch patients my age that I could talk to?
4. Would you recommend a 1-2 or 3 step surgery for me?
5. What is the length of the hospital stay?
6. Who does my follow-up a year out from surgery, you or a GI?
7. Will I need help at home after surgery. If so, typically for how long?
8. What should I expect 6 weeks from surgery? 6 months? 1 year and 2 years out?
9. Does your hospital have jpouch support group meetings?
