Hi I’ve had mine for seven years and knock on wood but besides having a very limited diet I am so much better than I was when I had uc . But I get scared when I read that after like 29’years orso people start to get problem. I wonder if that’s always the case ? I’m not saying I always feel great because I don’t . I’m often tired and am never away from a bathroom and get pouchitis a lot . But I excercize everyday day work with kids every day so overall I’m better than when I had UC pre surgery's.
