We already spoke to him! He thought (6 years ago) that the surgery would be too tricky - had never done a j-pouch prostatectomy and may just have to open him and close him up. He thought there was a high risk of failure. He has lots of adhesions. But then again, it is 6 years later and maybe it is time to talk to Gill again. Sorry to ask, but are there any incontinence issues for you?
