Permanent ileo for blockages

hi all. I’ve posted a lot about this the past year and a half. I have chronic partial bowel obstructions and am currently in hospital yet again with another. I’ve had over 20 in 18 months. I feel I’m finally in some good hands here and they think it is time to consider surgery to clear out adhesions and potentially take out the pouch. I’m writing for advice-has anyone gone back to the bag permanently for the sake of their health/quality of life? I said I’d never do it as I hated that bag but now that I’m am chronically sick, suddenly it looks like a better option than being sick and unfunctional all the time. I had to quit my job because these hit me so hard so often and we remortgaged our house to cope, not to mention living in chronic pain....Thanks for your thoughts and support. I always value this community so much
