I am excited for you to put UC in the past. I think it's a good decision & that you will be amazed how much you're able to enjoy your wedding. I try to be level-headed and not pursued anyone one way or the other, but it sounds like this is likely the path to you getting your quality of life back. How did the meeting go? Did you ask a lot of questions? Did you feel confident in the surgeon's abilities? Did he/she talk about fertility? post surgical pain management? Do you have post operative home nurse care? My ostomy nurse went to my hospital room to see me once and she helped me change, then I had the home nurse a few times after... My SO didn't come with me to my nurse appt immediately before surgery. He did go with me to meet the surgeon when I consulted. I think either way can work out. My guy never helped me with my pouch.
