Reply to "critical illness insurance/loss of work coverage"

The Pouch expands but only in the first year or so after surgery, not 20 years after surgery. When I had surgery I was specifically told by my surgeon to resist the urge to defecate and hold my bowel movements as long as possible in order to stimulate the Pouch to expand. I thought this was a pretty fundamental standard drill with anyone who gets a J Pouch. In any event it isn’t really clear what is meant by the comment that the Pouch “has grown.”  There is a period of natural growth and you would appear to be long past that, unless something else is meant.
