Lauren, I would have preferred to keep my J pouch if the high risk of cancer and leakage problems from a weak anal sphincter had not been present.  Getting the BCIR eliminated the risk of cancer and the leakage problems and significantly improved my quality of life.  I would never have been happy with and end ileostomy.

I totally understand! I am just glad you are doing better overall. It must be hard to have to keep the catheter clean all of the time, I am sure you do an amazing job at it though!
