Weight loss

 I have been posting and now have made the final decision to go to end ileostomy from jpouch. So my question is, I only have fap no other major health issues, will I loose weight from having the surgery?

You are likely going to loose some weight due to surgery, prep and recovery but the pouch doesn't weigh much. I imagine that provided everything goes well and you recover quickly and are able to start eating normally your weight loss would be minimal. That being said it depends on your body and you, I can loose weight fast just by missing a meal or two. The other thing is that without the jpouch food can travel faster through so you may not absorb as much nutrients.
