My name is Amber. I have UC I have been fighting it for the past 3 years. I have already done a total colon removal, we tried to reconect. The fist time that we did it failed. So we are going to Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville, TN to try to reconect AGAGIN. If there is anyone out there that can help me out please reply to this message ASAP. I am wanting to know the questions that i should ask about the surgery before we go through with it.

The good people @ can answer your questions better than most of us here, the majority of us still have our colons. If it was my decision I would go to the Cleveland or Mayo Clinics for my surgery because they are the top 2 GI hospitals in the country.
