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

Very good explanation. After two revision attempts on my almost 37 year old K pouch in the last two years, I am traveling to Florida for a consultation next week with Dr. Rehnke to discuss the BCIR. Assessing all my options. 

I would seriously like to hear anything you feel comfortable sharing.  I have not met Dr.  Rehnke but since it seems like he and Dr. Schiller in California are the two major Surgeons I am aware of in the USA  ( East and West Coasts) I have tried to know who is active.   Please feel free to PM me if you want.  I know someone going to Florida and I have even thought about what it would be like to live there.  I am impressed that your K Pouch lasted that long.  That is twice as long as mine did!  I am sure you will be given the best advice and care.  Will you be traveling a long distance?  Either way, know you are not alone and take care.
