I know what you mean. I never wanted an ileostomy again but when my j-pouch failed I didn't want to have another one created or biologics. So to me it wasn't the worst thing to do... it was 3rd from the last thing I wanted to do. I don't care what they call it but cuffitis is UC and I think pouchitis is also an IBD.
I relied on people here that told me a permanent ileostomy is much easier to handle than a temp one. They were right.
