Reply to "Elective surgery??"

I agree with your latter point- I had the surgery at age 29 after 20 years of UC. If you feel fully informed about all the risks, then I would suggest you still get a second opinion from another GI and then if surgery is deemed your best option, make sure you pick a good and very experienced surgeon. From your earlier posts I was under the impression that your current GI isn’t advocating surgery and probably doesn’t believe you have exhausted non-surgical treatment modalities. I believe that if that is in fact true, you should proceed cautiously, and all I tried to do is reinforce that cautious mindset.

Good luck.
