I am so sorry. Have you gotten a second opinion on the pouch surviving? Dr. Feza Remzi at NYU does a lot of pouch redos. If it’s a really sick pouch it’s a big decision to leave it in or take it out. In the end, you will figure it out and get better, but I hope it is any easier road. Best - Doug Karson - call me if you need anything 917 519 7292.
