Thanks a lot for you support it does make me feel better. I don't really have the energy or the ressources to get a second opinion around here. I trust my GI and he's got a lot of experience in the field, plus he's the type of person who won't tolerate to see you suffer for a long period of time, maybe that's why he's acting fast.
It's reassuring to know that I am not the only one in this situation.. I thought that normality was to try treatments for at least a year before thinking of a colectomy! The Jpouch sounds like a good solution for me, Just the fact that I would not have to take anti inflammatory meds or immunosuppressants everyday is very appealing...
I will have more time with my GI later today , when I get my room at the hospital I will tell him how I feel.
Maybe Remicade will work, but again do I want to use Remicade for the rest of my life..? I am not used to make big decisions like this...
