I wasn't told this but my ostomy nurse asked me who my surgeon was and then commented that he would make any excuse not to do anything else after the original surgery. It rather dents one's confidence about whether we are being given the correct information.
Thank you for replying. I know what you mean one person say one thing then another something else, if my surgeon won't do it I think I'll get a second opinion from a pouch specialist I've heard of close by.
Hope your well

Did you bleed every time you had to poop the rest of Brown stuff?
Was your colitis severe in your rectum?
After your j-pouch what changed in your life and do you have problems with it?
