I'm not sure that is exactly the case. Having this surgery is pretty overwhelming for some people. Add to that complications and anesthesia and sometimes the memory doesn't aid us like it should. People come here to ask questions or get advice from people who may sometimes know more than their surgeons about certain things - because we live it daily.quote:I am surprised by many posts like this thread, by posters who have questions on issues of fiber, meds and diet and often with no solid idea of what to do, as if they have been left to their own devices.
There is nothing wrong with asking questions here about what is going on. For instance, you recently asked j-pouchers about your symptoms after smoking a cigar rather than asking your fellow cigar smokers. People have reasons for asking questions here.
