My son (soon to be 16) was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis in 2010. After 2 years of taking various meds (which did not work), he had a total colectomy (Aug 1, 2012). It was the first out of 3 surgeries (next will be the creation of the j-pouch). For now, he has an ileostomy.
Once he has his j-pouch (no more ostomy)... will my son be able to resume sports? Up until his surgery, he participated heavily in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Wrestling. Will he ever be able to go back to doing what he loves?
