Thanks again LBA and yes that is another reason (losing more small intestine) not to have a new j pouch. The seton is helping as less tummy pains but not going to fix the whole branching fistula. I have a feeling that I would have had enough of surgery by then too to want another j pouch but trying to keep open minded. I need to find out more about the surgery including sowing up by bottom of it comes to it.
i did look at stoma products recently and yes there are loads aren't there.
