K pouch since 1979, numerous redos due to an other underlying disease (Ehler's-Danlos...a congenital collagen deficiency that that means that I do not heal like other people, my body does not make the 'glue' needed...so I fall apart at the seams).
I moved across the Atlantic and started a new life in France thanks to the k pouch. I teach, lecture and travel. I would have never dared to do any of these things pre-pouch and wouldn't have had the courage with an ileo.
My pouch gives me liberty, freedom and a strong sense of normality (most of the time!) It has its moments when I rant and rave and complain (silently to myself) but most of the time I do not think about it or I couldn't do everything that I do in life...which is a lot for even normal people.
I am an Everready Bunny...always on the go. Thank you K pouch
