I had my proctocolectomy in 2013 and a C-section almost exactly a year later in 2014. (I don't recommend this, btw...)
I had the C-section at the instruction of my surgeon, who said I should have them to avoid the risk of tearing my sphincter and consequent incontinence.
However, my baby ended up being small (5.5#) so I doubt this would have been an issue. I also don't relish the idea of having the same scar opened up multiple times, so I'm considering trying the next baby with vaginal delivery.
I'm wondering your experience delivering naturally after J-pouch surgery? Have any of you done VBAC? Obviously I plan on consulting my OB-GYN but I wanted to hear thoughts from all of you.
