yes a second opinion is probably in order. And unfortunately my surgeon has moved half way across the country and isn't an option.
Jan- I was afraid you were going to say that. I'm just not ready yet for a permanent ileostomy. I know and end is different than the loop, but my loop was a pain in the butt and leaked almost everyday… I'm just not ready to have to deal with it again. There is a new medication that is a biologic that has been designed for UC/Crohn's that is up for final FDA approval in February that my GI was talking about a few weeks ago. not sure if it will work or not, but being this close I really hope I can make it and see if it will work…….
