Reply to "Permanent Ileostomy to a K-Pouch or BCIR?"

Janet-

Thanks so much for you information. I am currently in the research stage! I have been connecting with as many patients as possible, researching doctors, and more. It can be quiet overwhelming, but like you, I want to be as knowledgeable and prepared as possible. I am also taking care to not only seek the good experiences, but the bad as well because it is only responsible to know going into something like this that it may work, but it also may not. I have to consider how a surgery like this will affect my current work status and the progress I have made in my health. 

I am located in northcentral West Virginia. I know many patients have had their surgeries done at Palms of Pasadena Hospital in Florida, which is a 14 hour drive for me. That is definitely something that I am taking into consideration moving forward as well. Where was your surgery done and who was your surgeon? 

I truly appreciate your feedback. This community has been absolutely incredible in providing honest and extremely helpful information. - Kristen
