Reply to "Permanent ileo for blockages"

I had a J pouch for 30 years and also had lots of adhesions.  Fortunately, none of them caused a blockage, but recurrent high grade dysplasia and a malignant polyp in the anal cuff made pouch removal necessary,  I avoided getting an ileostomy by getting a BCIR (similar to a K pouch) and have had no problems with it.  Removal of the J pouch and adhesions took my surgeon several extra hours,  While there is no guarantee that one of these procedures would eliminate your blockage problem, you may wish to ask your surgeon if this would be a good alternative if your J pouch could not be saved.
