Reply to "Would you go back to the ileostomy?"

Thank you so much for your response.  It Is very helpful.  Can you tell me what kind of problems you had with the j-pouch after it was left in after your ileostomy?

The colon and rectal surgeon I discussed this with will not remove the j-pouch because he says it is a very hard surgery and I could get an infection.  He said it would not be a problem if the j-pouch was left.  As usual they do not tell you everything.

Any suggestions on where to go for an experienced j-pouch removal surgeon?  I live in Colorado, but I would be willing to travel elsewhere.
