TJDANNA I will have to back track a little; I kinda ranted myself when hearing a very similar condition and situation that I live. A commonality is the surgeons reinforcing their positions. When I read that the doctor keeps say that it may take up to a year for your body to get adjusted to the pouch , that Popped my Cork. You should still be able to find some help at this sight like the steady handed approach that Jan Dollar and others here offer. Some comments made by fysichians can be exceedingly frustrating. They have careers, reputations and, interface with insurance companies. I have observed that being primary and almost as if there`s a conflict. I hope that a physician or physicians can really find a way to get your symptoms more under control and hopefully improve your condition.
