I know how she feels! The Jpouch destroyed my life too, I was very well with an ileostomy and then destroyed my health in March 2000 having pouch surgery, I was bedbound and in a wheelchair for a year afterwards, 5 yrs of constant abscesses/fistula/feeling terribly ill/no energy I had the pouch removed but my former good health has never returned. I have been diagnosed with CFS- a blanket term but no real explanation on why I have been ill since surgery. I am housebound a lot of the time and my life is ruined through feeling unwell on most days. Having the J Pouch was the worst decision of my life and removing it the best. I wish I could turn the clock back.
