Reply to "j pouch in one surgery..anyone??"

I'm glad he's scheduled for a scope, worriedmom. He can't have a "colonoscopy," because he has no colon. The procedure is called a pouchoscopy. It's sometimes scheduled as a "flexible sigmoidoscopy" (flex sig), because the staff doesn't know what a pouchoscopy is, but he doesn't have a sigmoid colon any more, either. Good luck with the Cheerios elimination diet!
