I would love to discuss some coping tips and strategies with others who have just about my same situation and are dealing with it now. I have had a J-Pouch for about 11 or 12 years or 13 (I lost count!) and on the whole, all is well. I manage well, but like anything else, I always think there is room for improvement and I'd like to have a structured group of folks all in the same boat here... Someone relatively healthy and active, have a J-pouch for 10 - 20 years and would be willing to talk about tips to .. well.. tips for just about anything to improve/deal with the situation!
