Thanks so much for that info, it was actually really helpful. As a medical student at the moment I'm kind of embarrassed that I haven't even researched my own surgery! Maybe one day I'll be brave enough.

In 25 years I'll be 43! I guess thats a great way to look at it too. 43 is young but like you said, medicine will advance so much by then, maybe they'll be able to grow my colon back (kidding! maybe?)

I keep a relatively good diet I think, but I wouldn't say I'm perfect at it, which was hard to accept at first. I couldn't have 'good' food for almost two years and it sucked, so if I'm craving it I'll let myself indulge sometimes, only because it'll make me happy. I found that exercise is really great on the pouch too. Wish you the best!
