I have decided to have the kpouch surgery instead of the Jpouch. Does anyone know if they do this laparoscopically? If not how many days were you in the hospital and how long until I can return to work in an office setting?

First of all, where do you plan on having the surgery? How many has the surgeon done? What is his/her success rate? Can you afford to travel? Have you explored the BCIR version of the K-Pouch? It is done in St. Pete Florida.
Could you go to the Cleveland Clinic for the standard K-pouch? You really want to choose a place that has done lots of this type of surgery.
Why do you want a K-Pouch over the J-pouch? You need to do lots of homework before you even think about when you can return to work. Or, how many days you will be in the hospital. I wish you the best. By the way, I have had a K-pouch since 1976. The J-pouch had not been 'invented' at that time. If it was available at that time, I probably would have chosen the 'J'. PM me if you'd like to talk off-line.
