Reply to "Elective surgery??"

I think if I had been younger at the time I was diagnosed, I may have considered trying other biologics.  However, I was in my 60’s at the time, was diagnosed with severe pancolitis and had just had a follow up colonoscopy with dysplasia.  I was also very ill for several months.  When I first saw my surgeon for a consult, things were looking okay, but within a few months, I was back to square one.  So we made the decision.  I did not expect things to be perfect, just better.  And that’s exactly how it’s been.  I have no complaints.  I really think all of our situations vary and we make our decisions based on our individual circumstances.  Also, in my follow up colonoscopy, it was indicated by my GI that a j-pouch should be considered.
