Sorry to hear you're dealing with this. J-pouch surgery recovery depends on a lot of variables. How many steps will the procedure be? How is your health going into it? We had a member here with dysplasia who ended up needing some chemo, obviously that slows things down.
Check out the post in my signature. I go through my own recovery (from sickly to UC free). I had 3 steps, so it took 12 weeks after step 1, 8 weeks after step 2, then adjusting after step 3 took some time, but I was able to live my life without UC at that point.
Feel free to ask any questions & let us know how your follow up goes.
