J Pouch

Hi to you folks,
I usually post on the H&N (head & neck)site, but came here as I have had my colon removed, 3 years ago, and have a J-Pouch now. I have lived with colon problems for many years and was diagnosed with familial polyposis (sort of). Anyway, I got the J-Pouch to replace my colon. You can look it up on how it is done...Just want to add my 2 cents in case someone is getting their colon removed as to what my experiences have been....The J Pouch was installed instead of a colostomy or ileostomy....It works great and I thought I'd try to educate someone about my experiences as I said earlier....
My wishes and prayers to all of you......

I've also got a j-pouch and most of my problems are going to the bathroom about 10-15 times a day. Diet doesn't seem to matter. Glad that you are doing well with it. Thanks for offering to help others out there.

I'm not in need of that information, but I think it's great that you've come to share with those who do.

*Hugs*
