Well an year is too soon. Its been over four years with me and trust me it gets way better with time. I feel its as good as the previous normal with time. The leaks will go away as your system gets used to it. I have not been taking any medicines with regard to the J Pouch and eat just about anything. Well the toilet visits are there but then you get used to it. I can go an entire day without a toilet visit but yes you do feel uncomfortable beyond a point and yes its more comfortable visiting a toilet in the middle of the day... so cheer up buddy its going to get way better and there will be a time when you dont feel its presence.. just be positive.. that makes a sea difference.. btw I am from Delhi.. I got my surgery from Asian Institute in Hyderabad. what was the reason for your surgery?
looking forward to be in touch..
