I had a private room at Yale after my takedown. In fact, most of the rooms were private. The floor was small and many of the patients were also in the process of getting j-pouches or ostomies, so the nursing staff was very familiar and skilled in this area. The majority had the same surgeon as me. I had the 3 step j-pouch procedure and my experiences were all good. Only complaint I had was the the rooms for the second and third steps were very small. They had recently moved from another floor. The first room I was in was much bigger and easier to get around in and have room for visitors. I also had zero complications after all my surgeries. Just lucky, I guess.
