Happy Spring to all. I’ve had my J-Pouch since 2000 with never any issues (very lucky) and have never been back to see a GI doc. Had a recent scare in the local ER with an intestinal blockage at the stoma site but they wanted to remove my gallbladder (it wasn’t the gallbladder but a blockage as I knew and could feel.)
Dr. Bauer and Gorfine were my surgeons way bask then. I’d like to be proactive and have a new GI doc and GI surgeon going forward as I get older so I’m not in a predicament some day where I need a doctor and have to take the one available. Please send me suggestions. I’d like to set up a consultation sooner than later.
