Hey everyone. I've been on this forum for ten plus years.
I haven't posted in a while since I wasn't sure what to do myself. Here's my conundrum.
I had a failed pouch in 2007 due to a leak I have a loop ileostomy temporarily. I thought I'd just get it until I could do the redo. However, I just never found someone in Canada to do it. I then went to school and did more degrees and went on with life.
Having finished now, I need to get something done. Getting rejected from tons of women for the ostomy and being unmarried makes this a challenge.
My current problems are this pouch discharge which is due to my diversion pouchitis. I am also worried about the long term damage of my pouch due to the diversion. Any advice on how to treat this?
I am thinking of getting a US opinion with Dr. Remzi at the Langone. What do you guys think?
