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

"Please let me know if you know of any and I'll definitely speak to my GI about them. I haven't even read of any other options."

Years ago when I was in the midst of a very long flair I was put into remission with hydrocort enemas and sulfasalazine. This was before may of the newer treatments. For years I was in remission or low level disease with VSL#3 and sulfasalazine. I lost my colon to cancer not because of direct effects of UC, but the indirect. Someone suggested the fecal transplant this has become much more main stream
and is being used to treat C diff infections.
My main point was it is likely but not certain that you will use less medications with a J pouch and you cant go back.
