J-pouch Surgery Re-do?

Hi all,

Hoping someone has experience with this. I had my surgery about 16 years ago and have been living with my j-pouch since then. I've never had the success that some have had with it, and my issues have become progressively worse. My doctor told me that my issues have stemmed from the fact the surgeon left my rectal cuff which apparently they don't do anymore. My rectal cuff is chronically inflamed and is now scarred and growing polyps. My doctor told me my choice is to basically live with it or get an ileostomy. Has anyone ever gone back and had the j-pouch surgery redone by removing the rectal cuff (and had it be successful in reducing symptoms/bms?)
