I had emergency surgery for a toxic megacolon (suffering from UC) and have an ostomy.  I am now am trying to find the best surgeon in Dallas to create a j-pouch.  It is my understanding that I will have to have 2 more surgeries in order to accomplish this and I want to make sure I make the right choice.  I would appreciate any assistance and recommendations in finding the right surgeon. Thank you.

Although no fault to my surgeon.  My pouch didn't work.

She was very good. (anybody dealing with me has to be good.  I'm not an easy person to deal with in surgical situations)

But she is in Ft.  Worth.

Not sure about Dallas  I'm sure they have a competent surgeon there.  Closer to home the better

If you need her name I can pm you.  She may know of some there.

Thank you so much for your response - I'm sorry it didn't work out for you - hoping it might for me, but always prepared.  I think I've found a doctor in Dallas - Jefferson Hurley and I'm going to have a consult with him.  My surgery was an emergency and I didn't get to pick the surgeon who removed my colon and I absolutely do not want to use him for anything else.  Good luck in your journey!
