If you had a BCIR then had it removed, I am not sure why you did though? Then the kpouch is pretty much the same thing... I believe you have to have at least 12 feet of small bowel left to make a continent ileo. CC is the best though so go and see. I have had surgeons tell me they could not do this and that when I was consulting. then I went to one that was similar to perhaps yours you are considering, suggested he could do certain surgeries and that he didn't take the word of anyone so he looked for himself. Glad he did, I actually had cancer and nobody else caught it, just said I had FAP. If I didn't have cancer though he would have been able to do the IRA like he thought when everyone else said I couldn't have it. So put some trust in the GOOD doctors but stay realistic.
