I finally hit my limit with my UC the other day. It's been 15 long years. For the majority of this year I've had countless issues with bathroom accidents. I have to wear depends non stop, I'm a prisoner to my home due to needing to be near a bathroom. I feel fine sadly, I just had a bathroom accident the other day and something just clicked that it's enough, it's time to do something about it. I'm out of medications, my GI can no longer help me. I've been with him the entire time I've had this disease. I've already had bowel surgery removing he left side of my colon. I know I'm at high risk for pouchitis according to the PANCA test. I can't imagine things can be much worse than what I'm going through now. There are a lot of "what ifs" until the surgeon gets a look at my insides. I meet with him next Friday the 11th for the 3rd time and to schedule the procedure. Praying things go well.
