Thanks again for the reply, Sue. Again, I'm getting a bit ahead of myself here, as I have not yet discussed surgical options with my doctor. He didn't recommend partial surgery, it was simply my own speculation. Thanks again for the infomation! Hopefully the surgical route isn't in my cards for the future, but either way, I'm not afraid of whatever might have to be done
EDIT: Sue, reading your signature I can see that you've had a J-Pouch surgery performed. Did you do the one-step J-Pouch surgery you were discussing in your original post in this thread, or did you have a conventional colectomy and then a subsequent reversal?
