I have my J-pouch surgery on November 23, so about six weeks from now. Tomorrow is my final consultation with my surgeon before the surgery, but because of uni I haven’t given myself any time to think about the surgery very much. Is there anything that you wish you knew or asked your surgeon before your reversal? I can’t think of any specific questions for him at the moment. I know of the complications, like pouchitis occuring in about 20-25% of people and the risk of cancer in the cuff of rectum that is left over.
Thanks for any input.
