Help - will this stuff ever end.?? My son is in need of surgery because they believe his intestines are twisting from scar tissue related to past surgeries to get a J-pouch. He had UC. I just don't understand - will this keep happening? Surgery will create more scar tissue so that scares me plus how much intestine do you have left to mess with after all these surgeries.
Is this going to continue for the rest of his life in and out of surgery and hospitals? I am at a loss - I feel like the picture is always painted as positive - like get j-pouch and all will be great but that hasn't been the case. He's had chronic pouchitis (takes daily Cipro) and now this.
Any advice and insight would be helpful.
