Do j pouchers ever meet up? I would be keen to speak with a group in the same situation as myself or who have taken the route i have chosen to take.
There is a support group in the UK called the Red Lion Group.
I think they sometimes hold events, informational and social. Maybe they have a Facebook page too?
I'm not a member because I live in Australia but I do occasionally read the group newletter and have had contact with staff at St Mark's as well.
