Good to hear you are doing well justwrong, it's great that you felt well enough to go back to work just two weeks after surgery! Hope you get your j pouch.
Quincy, I did not tell my friends about
surgery either (at least not until I had my takedown). I didn't want surgery and was terrified that I would end up with a permanent bag. I didn't want anyone to know if that were the case. I was hospitalised for a month after surgery due to complications, however my UC had got so severe that I was also hospitalised quite a lot before surgery so my friends were used to it and thought that that was why I was in hospital again. My best friend was quite offended that I hadn't confided in her when I eventually told her all about
it. It's been over a year now since takedown and it's great to feel well and be able to socialise properly with friends again
