Hi Marsha! Nice to hear from you! I have heard that Dr. Shen is part of Dr. Kiran's group now, although I have not met him yet. Dr. Kiran did my corrective surgery a little more than a month ago. Until last week I apparently had an infection and was in terrible pain, making me doubt whether I made the right decision. (I was thinking about having a reversal.) I just finished a round of antibiotics and things are MUCH better! Pain is all but gone and my stoma and pouch is behaving better than I expected. I'd have been happy with improvement. If things stay as they are right now, I will be able to agree with others in our group who say the doctor "gave me my life back!" In 11 months I will go to NYC for my first annual scope with Dr. Kiran. Maybe we'll be there at the same time and be able to meet! That would be nice!
