Reply to "Am I really ready for J-pouch surgery?"

Having pancolitis is not a requirement for colectomy (definitely not at the Cleveland Clinic...and I've seen people who had really bad proctitis post about having colectomy).

My understanding is that they take out the entire colon regardless of the disease extent as otherwise there's a risk of UC attacking the remaining colon tissue.
