I had a jpouch redo,3 step in 2017-by Dr Remzi and it was life changing. I’m so happy I went to him. He closed a peri-anal fistula, repaired a hernia, removed scar tissue. I found him and his office to be professional and courteous. His office is always available to answer any questions you may have.
My hospital stay was awful. I believe at the time they had no beds available and I had to be put on any floor available. Neurological floor,maternity, and I was in the old building (new one wasn't opened)hospital staff was mostly concerned about getting you out as quickly as possible-even when you clearly and obviously need to stay longer. My local Dr’s were appalled they sent me home so soon. My blood pressure was so low I almost passed out. There was also a bit of mis-communication with the ostomy supply co. and Dr office prescription on several occasions, leaving me without proper supplies. My local visiting nurse agency had 1 ostomy nurse and I couldn’t seem to get on the schedule (always booked).
In hind site I would make sure I line up in advance- a proper ostomy nurse. It was 20 years since I last did it.
i now can look back and say it was only 9 months of my life for such a great quality of life.
i don’t take any medications so it was worth some of the negative for such a good outcome.
