Diagnosed with UC about 7 years ago, tried all the meds and I was doing well until I was in Toronto 3 years ago and got really sick and just cldnt snap outta it this time, not even copious amounts of prednisone saved me. so I had a sub total colectomy and end ileostomy. Had the jpouch construction 16months later in October 2016 and just had the reversal 3 weeks ago December 2017 .. delighted to have it done but this is as tough as the 1st surgery imo , Iím coping but itís definately a battle Iím looking forward to few months down the line to get some normality back . It would b great to chat with someone who has gone threw or goin threw a similar situation .. basically Somebody who been threw the mill too 🙃
