As far as I know, yes. The kpouch interests me, in case I can't have a jpouch due to poor rectal strength or something like that. I'm pretty sure it can be reduced due to pregnancy/childbirth, and I plan on having one more kid so long as my UC stays in check. I'm a little apprehensive about
it, because pregnancy/childbirth is what triggered my first flare, and I'm scared about
that happening again. I just have to remind myself that it's likely it won't be so bad the next time, because I'll know what to do to treat it (I wasn't diagnosed for a good while after symptoms started), and that even if I do flare badly, my son was totally worth it, and another child would be as well!
